Fish – Friendly Interactive SHell – a smart and user-friendly command line shell that works on Linux, MacOS, and other operating systems.

As developers we spend a lot of time in our terminal. Having a well tuned shell tremendously helps us in our day-to-day live. Yet, most shells (bash, zsh, ...) require a lot of configuration to get to a well tuned state. The fish shell on the other hand comes with most of these configurations by default. And if we don't need to configure it, it will probably not go bad on us. In this talk we'll go through some of the features that fish comes out of the box with, and I'll show how little configuration was needed on my side to feel really at home in my terminal.
