My name is Victor Engmark. I have been a software developer since 2004, free and open source software contributor since 2007, Stack Overflow & Stack Exchange contributor since 2009, and a Bash user since 2010.
My first big task using Bash was to change a write–once read–many script to be properly robust. I ended up pulling it apart into maybe a dozen scripts and unit testing each of them separately. It was a great learning experience: for the rest of my time in that job there were no bug reports for it, which cemented the value of testing and the fact that Bash scripts can be made robust.
