I just wanted to take a few seconds to introduce the next two videos that you're about to watch. They contain the most important aspects of shell scripting. The content in those videos will take you really far. You'll be able to do almost anything you want with a shell script if you really understand what's covered.
Later on in the course, we'll be diving deeper into some of those topics presented in those videos and you'll learn advanced techniques around those topics that will help take care of edge-case scenarios. I'll also introduce you to some other techniques that aren't covered in the next two videos that can take your shell scripting to the next level. I recommend that you watch these next two videos at least twice and take the time to practice the techniques you learned in them. Okay, let's get started.
