Command line/scripting practice


Hello, new to Linux (cyber security student taking a class as a course requirement). I have a virtual machine set up running Ubuntu, and I'm interested in getting some practice scripting since our class labs are pretty basic. Are there any good resources out there for learning/practicing scripts, or is my best bet to just get a command lien reference and start pouring through?

These are some good resources:

http://tldp.org/LDP/Bash-Beginners-G...tml/index.html
http://www.tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/

But honestly I would just jump in. Start scripting and use search engines and this forum to get answers on the questions that come up as you go...

One thing that really helped me was conky. It's a program that lets you display different information on your desktop. I spent a lot of time scripting to get the information I wanted in exactly the way I wanted to show up. It might be worth a look.
