Scripting/Programming As A System Administrator

Posted 01-06-2011 at 05:47 AM by mufy (From A System Admin's Desk)
Updated 01-06-2011 at 06:02 AM by mufy (Categorising)

The vast experience I gained into programming was during my school days in C++. There was nothing that I hated in it neither did I find any sort of pull towards programming.

The years that followed my post schooling I have found myself drifting away from coding, intentionally many a times. Starting my career as a System Administrator I found the need to carry out tasks with the help of bash scripts in Linux. It has been an on and off thing ever since.
