This may sound generic and non technical to many but i can use some quality advice here. I am an technical support engineer who happens to be interested in shell scripting. My job does not need me to code and i need some advice on how i can develop my self as a shell scripting resource as i would like to make scripting / programing as one of the competency for future roles. I am already working on simple scrips using cent os and VMware. Any advice will be appreciated!
