If you want to learn Bash in the context practical hands-on projects, this is the best course for you, but I think it ‘s been targeted for the beginners only. So if you don’t know how to sort, uniq, awk, for basic tasks this course is right for you.
This is really the course which makes sense to use bash in order to solve data problem rather than just focusing on syntax, this way people learn better as it makes sense that whether you can make use of these commands.
