where is a good resource for learning to program in bash?
I have a server that runs freebsd8.1 unix... is bash used in that kind of OS? so would bash programming be for linux and unix?
Then batch would be for windows OS ?

Googling 'Bash programming' immediately brings up several resources. To figure out if your OS has bash already on it, open a terminal and type 'which bash' If it prints something like '/bin/bash' then you have bash. If it says could not find 'bash' then you don't. Don't fear though, much of bash's capabilities come from sh, and that is on every unix computer. You might also have ksh, which is a programmer's shell. It has support for extra goodies that bash or sh don't have.
