Introduction to the Unix Command Line Workshop – 2021-11-04
Learn and practice how to talk directly to your computer via the command line. The Unix shell is a powerful tool for using scientific software, working with large datasets, and controlling remote servers. It is primarily used to manage files and run programs, and it allows for automation of repetitive tasks. This workshop is a prerequisite for many of DataLab’s workshops, including Introduction to Version Control with Git, Reproducible Research for Teams with GitHub, and the Remote Computing series.
No prior coding experience is necessary. All participants will need a computer with a Unix shell scripting program (Terminal, Bash, etc.) installed and the latest version of Zoom. If you are using Windows, you will need to install additional software prior to the start of the workshop.
