# Comments in Bash

To do that in Bash, you need to add the # symbol at the beginning of the line. Comments will never be rendered on the screen.

Here is an example of a comment:

# This is a comment and will not be rendered on the screen


Let’s go ahead and add some comments to our script:

#!/bin/bash

# Ask the user for their name

read -p "What is your name? " name

# Greet the user
echo "Hi there \$name"
echo "Welcome to DevDojo!"


Comments are a great way to describe some of the more complex functionality directly in your scripts so that other people could find their way around your code with ease.
