back then when i was introduced to computers and Linux the first time, i struggled to learn Bash Programming . But just yesterday to automate a few tests (so that i could start the bash file and run the tests , and i could go to bed , to check out the results the next morning) i needed to program a bash file..... and i did it in just a few minutes (kidding , took an hour). Engineering has a few advantages after all. Almost all my friends , me included always say that the engineering course we take is really useless......all the topics are out of date..... but it gives us the skill sets to understand new things and also to bring them into being. this is the most important and least appreciated benefit of the engineering course.
