For the past few years I get by with AppleScripts and Shell/Bash scripts mostly with researching and trial by doing, testing, breaking etc. but I would actually like to sit down and really learn the core of a scripting language rather than just relying on what I find online. I have AppleScripts but these cannot be used with Apple's Profile Manager and Login Scripts/Hooks which I'm starting to use a lot now. I guess my question is, should I be learning Shell/Bash scripts or maybe Apple's Swift will in time be able to handle similar tasks that Shell handles. What would you recommend for and IT Administrator that handles countless deployments of Mac labs, use of Profile Manager, Munki etc. What would be more beneficial to sink my time into. I'm willing to do the training but want to try and figure out which would be best to start with. Thank you for your in put and suggestions.
