The Unix Shell (UCLA Carpentries Workshop Winter 2023)

Monday, Feb 6, 2023 - 9:00am to 12:00pm

The Unix shell has been around longer than most of its users have been alive. It has survived because it’s a powerful tool that allows users to perform complex and powerful tasks, often with just a few keystrokes or lines of code. It helps users automate repetitive tasks and easily combine smaller tasks into larger, more powerful workflows.

Use of the shell is fundamental to a wide range of advanced computing tasks, including high-performance computing. This workshop will introduce you to this powerful tool.

Note: There will be a drop-in session on Friday, February 3, 2023 from 10 am - 12 pm for those who need assistance with setting up their work station in advance of this workshop. You can join the drop-in session here: (this is NOT the link for the workshop itself)
