Getting started with the UNIX Shell

Room: Chernoff Hall 211 // Date: 30 July @ 9 am // Instructor: Hartmut Schmider, Centre for Advanced Computing

This class serves as an introduction to Linux, the UNIX-like operating system that runs on almost all high-performance computing systems. It is intended for users who have little or no experience with Unix or Linux. The focus is on the common bash shell. We cover material that helps the user to develop an understanding of the Linux command-line environment, which is necessary for successful use of Unix.

Topics covered include:


Windows users should install Git Bash. Git Bash is a minimal bash emulator used to emulate the command line found in UNIX environments. Mac and Linux users do not need to install anything.
