Learn two different methods in Linux that allow us to run scripts when the internet connection is available.
Chin Ming Jun
My programming journey began seven years ago, and I've primarily focused on the Java and Spring ecosystem. Alongside development, I've also delved into the DevOps realm, gaining experience with Linux and containerization technologies like Docker. In my free time, I enjoy exploring Linux-related topics, particularly networking. Additionally, I enjoy writing technical articles as it helps me to solidify my understanding of a subject that I'm learning.
Here's what I've written (so far):
