Event Description
This workshop meets on 9/20 and 9/21 at 4:30-6:00 PM. Registering for the 9/20 class automatically has you registered for the 2nd part on 9/21.

This heavily hands-on 2-part workshop introduces participants to the Linux command line, specifically the bash shell. It will demonstrate how to navigate the filesystem, how to manage files and folders and how to work with files. Participants will learn how to use common Linux commands such as ls, cd, mkdir, rm, pwd, mv, cp, cat, sort and wc.

While the emphasis is on Linux, much of the workshop material translates to macOS or other Unix systems.
