In my experience it stimulates the learning process immensely if you
have a specific objective and/or can immediately start doing something
useful with your skills as you acquire them.  In that light, learning
shell scripting is highly worthwhile, as you can do all kinds of fun
stuff, and it is not difficult. It will give you a some basic
programming skills *and* some very handy tools.
