My peers and I have been working on our LS 560 Unix assignment for the last couple of weeks, and I have to admit that for most of the process I have merely followed the steps within the video instructions. It wasn’t until I started researching and reading more about what line Unix is and its purpose that I started to understand its functions and why they are important. I am far from being knowledgeable or knowing much beyond the basic functions we have been taught in our course modules, however this assignment opened yet another door to the world of technology, I had never known existed previously.
I am starting to believe that I will (most likely) never be an expert on any language of coding or on Unix, however it is becoming more apparent to me that by just realizing these languages and systems exist will put me ahead of many peers. Having this knowledge will allow me to understand the user side of technology to a greater extent, as well. In conclusion, although the work is causing me anxiety and headaches right now, it is worth understanding and will be beneficial knowledge to have in my career!
