Workshop: Introduction to the Command Line and Unix

This workshop provides an introduction to the command-line interface. We’ll learn how to use commands to perform basic operations in the terminal — creating or navigating directories, listing and displaying files, moving or copying files — as well as searching files, managing file permissions, and creating symbolic links. Working in the command line, we can combine existing programs, automate repetitive tasks, and connect to remote resources.


Use of the command line is available to everyone. No prior knowledge is needed for this workshop, but please bring a laptop to participate.
