Intro to the Command Line

Tuesday, November 17, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Attendees must bring a laptop to this event.

This workshop will be an introduction to the UNIX command line. Topics covered will include the filesystem, environment, useful commands, working with files and folders, and installing programs.

The command line is a powerful tool for unlocking the core functions of your computer, and use of the command line is a prerequisite for many technical tasks, including data analysis and management (particularly of large data sets) and programming. This workshop will show you how to alter the computing environment, automate common tasks, and install programs and utilities from the Unix shell, available on both OSX and Linux computers.
