Database Administrators running databases on Linux spend a vast majority of their time in the command line interface. Changing environment settings, moving through directories, typing out and executing lengthy commands, and manipulating files requires valuable keystrokes and time.

This presentation reviews techniques to dramatically reduce the amount of time Database Administrators spend typing commands by using shell features and scripting to do the work for them.
