How to Concatenate Strings in Bash Scripting

tl;dr: In bash scripting, we can concatenate strings or string variables using the += operator or using ${variable} within the string.

Example 1: using +=

    website_name+=" - Lines of code for Change."
    echo "$concatenated_str"

Example 2: using ${variable}

    website_tagline='Lines of code for Change.'
    concatenated_str="${website_name} - ${website_tagline}"
    echo "$concatenated_str"

    This approach is much cleaner!
