Linux Commands for Beginners: 19 – Echo And Creating Variables

Video is ready, Click Here to View ×

Welcome to my Linux Commands for Beginners tutorial series, where I’ll show you how to use the Linux Command shell (specifically Bash) one command at a time. This series aims to take you from a beginner to an advanced user, one video at a time.

In this tutorial I talk about the echo command as well as creating variables.


  1. a couple quick observations: no need to repeat examples throughout the video or rehash the whole lesson at the end since it is easy to pause/review video at any time. It may seem a bit odd at first to just blast through the material but it makes for a quick tutorial that doesn't lag… very good use of segmentation, clear delivery..

    I wasn't a fan of the straight through approach before until it became more popular, now I enjoy the quick pace and find the traditional approach to be very slow lol

  2. You can also call for variables using echo on the Terminal. Such as, echo $USER and $LANG, but I don't know any other ones, which is what I'm here for, but no luck sadly. 😛 Just in-case someone stumbles across this old video and reads the comments like I do. xD
