Learn Linux Shell

This event has already taken place, please don't try to go to it!

Using the Linux shell is essential to the use of powerful tools and computing resources. Software Developer Dan Kerchner 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.

Please bring a laptop to this workshop. If you’re bringing a Windows laptop, please install PuTTY from www.putty.org beforehand. If you don’t have a laptop, we will a few extra on hand.

This workshop is part of the Build Your Skills Workshop Series which features practical, hands-on instruction in useful skills you may not learn in class. Other workshops in this Spring 2017 series are Build a Professional Website with Github Pages, Collaborating Using Github, How to Create Video Tutorials, Learn Linux Shell, Programming with Python, HTML/CSS/JS: How to Build a Web Page, Tagging, Finding, and Organizing Your Digital Files, and Intro to 3D Modeling with Tinkercad.
