Days 36-40 of training : Unix training, test. Training ends!
For UNIX, we went through 3 days of classroom training and one day for practice. And yet another day for the test.
We did all the practice using a telnet connection to a Red Hat Linux machine. Only Vi was allowed to be used as an editor.
Topics covered included use of Vi, most of the basic UNIX commands, writing shell scripts in bash, using AWK etc.
The questions given for practice usually involved reading/writing records from a file with fields of fixed length or separated by a delimiter like colon or space. Producing output in the correct format as required was important. AWK had to be used in places to parse an input file and produce required output. Some places needed knowledge of how to perform basic mathematical operations in a shell script.
Most people found the test to be as expected in difficulty, but a bit too lengthy to be completed in the allocated time. So make sure you have enough practice and don’t get stuck in something too long. Shell scripts can have some fiendishly tricky syntax in places.
Those who have retests will now have them in the coming week. Then we have Process Training for a day. And then we will have Behavioral Training for 5 days.
For most of us, the technical training is finally over. Feels really great!
