What are some sysadmin tasks that Python scripting is useful for, and utility scripts for performing those tasks?
I bet you didn’t know that you could write shell scripts in Python. For any programmer or systems administrator, shell scripting is a vital skill to master. It allows you to automate tedious tasks, turning them into consistent, repeatable actions.
All of the scripts that I write are BASH and I've been interested in the possibility of using Python (or any other language, really) as an alternative.
