Using the Linux Shell

Using the Linux shell is essential to the use of powerful tools and computing resources. Programmer Dan Kerchner and Systems Specialist Ian Hardy will get you started using the shell to interact with Linux computers. Knowledge of this swiss-army knife of a tool will provide you with the background needed to use many powerful tools for research and data analysis.

No prior programming knowledge is required, just a basic understanding of computer files and folders. This workshop is useful for anyone interested in programming and web related work or those who need to manipulate data.
