About Me

Scripting Mania is dedicated to all Linux and Unix scripting lovers. I started this blog as online notes for my day-to-day Programming/scripting activity and to share knowledge with people who are interested in learning different scripting languages  and those who are in to Automation field. Our community has open mind to learn and share knowledge, which is helping Open source to grow day by day.
I am glad to know that you are here and want to learn some new stuff.
I invite you to join our mailing list and get updates on Linux tips, tricks, mini How-to’s etc.
I have great passion about blogging and open source, Started this blog on 2010 but did not really showed interested till 2012 Dec.

We do give seminars on Open Source Scripting Languages such as Shell scripting, AWK, SED, Perl, Python and Ruby which can be used as automation of tasks for administrators. You can invite us to your School/College/University/Training institute and to your company to make people understand about Perl, Python and Ruby Languages. We do not charge for this, but if the seminar is out of Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh you have to provide us with the travel and accommodation.


I provide 2 days and 4 days workshop's on Shell, Perl, Python, Ruby scripting, Linux Basics for Colleges and universities. Please contact us at surendra at linuxnix dot com for more information.

The blog name and its Inception:

An excessive enthusiasm or desire; an obsession.

Origin of Scripting Mania:

In my Graduate years I am a bad programmer. For doing simple arithmetic operation I wrote a big C program. When my faculty showed me how to do it in simpler way, I thought I should not choose Software development as my carrier. I am a lazy person by heart, try to escape from work and enjoy my time with family and friends. But Linux administration with automation skills is killer combination. And one more situation which prompted me to deviate my resources to scripting and programming is requirement of changing DNS Bind server version number. There is no direct Linux/Unix command to do that. We have to know a bit of C language to edit BIND software C files. At this point I realised that admin knowledge with scripting/Programming knowledge is a mandatory requirement when you have couple of years of experience. If you observe some leading Scripting Languages like Perl and Python, those are actually developed by System administrators. These things prompted me to learn them and I found that its very much easy to learn these languages, if we have passion. I am addicted and mad to writing scripts in Shell/Perl/Python/Ruby whichever suits best for that situation to reduce administration load on me.

URL, a culmination of Linux and UNIX

Our URL reflects the purpose of this blog. After a thorough research and analysis for a month, we have finalized linuxnix.com which serves as Linux and UNIX blog. This blog focuses on Scripting  on Linux and in addition is informative on group of UNIX flavors (*nix).
