This workshop provides training for using the Linux command-line interface. The workshop utilizes materials provided by the Software Carpentries on Unix shells, and emphasizes the bare minimum requirements to become proficient on the supercompter.
The Unix shell has been around longer than most of its users have been alive. It has survived so long because it’s a power tool that allows people to do complex things with just a few keystrokes. More importantly, it helps them combine existing programs in new ways and automate repetitive tasks so they aren’t typing the same things over and over again. Use of the shell is fundamental to using a wide range of other powerful tools and computing resources (including “high-performance computing” supercomputers). These lessons will start you on a path towards using these resources effectively.
