Online Event

Caltech Library is offering a two-day, hands-on workshop on using the shell to manage and automate analysis on your computer.  We'll cover navigating on the command line, managing files and directories, combining multiple commands with pipes, repeating commands with loops, and basic shell scripting. This workshop does not require any prior experience working on the command line. It is based on a Software Carpentry lesson, but has been customized as a stand-alone unit. 

9:45am - 11:15am, Monday, April 24, 2023
