Unix Shell and Command Line Basics

Wed, 18/08/2021 - 09:30 to 12:30

The Unix environment is incredibly powerful but quite daunting to the newcomer. Command line confidence unlocks powerful computing resources beyond the desktop, including virtual machines and High Performance Computing. It enables repetitive tasks to be automated. And it comes with a swag of handy tools that can be combined in powerful ways. Getting started is the hardest part, but our helpful instructors are there to demystify Unix as you get to work running programs and writing scripts on the command line.

You will learn to:

  • Navigate and work with files and directories (folders)
  • Use a selection of essential tools
  • Combine data and tools to build a processing workflow
  • Automate repetitive analysis using the command line

A Getting started with HPC using PBS Pro session is also being offered 23 - 24 August (following this course) for participants who are interested in this as well.
