I would like to develop a shell script that would automatically run a backup program and then shutdown the computers, but I do not know the first thing about script development or even writing scripting. if anyone could help me out I would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to Linuxhelp.
Please tell us what operating systems you are running i.e. distribution/version and what exactly you want to backup and to what type of media.
A backup can be as simple as running the tar or rsync commands or runnig full application like amanda. You can find lots of help on the listed topics and more by googling.

I assume by shell script you are running bash. http://tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/
