Beginners guide:

Good Linux tutorial at the cli level:

Apart from that, just write lots of scripts. There's no substitute for practice. IOW, use shell even when you'd normally use eg Perl, C, etc.
Even if the progs aren't complete, the attempt will teach you a lot.

Watch on this forum. When someone poses a question related to shell scripting, try to come up with an answer. Even if you don't get an answer that actually works, I guarantee that you will learn much along the way. If your answer works, post it & pat yourself on the back or give yourself a raise.

when you write good programs, make sure you release them on the net as open source.
