While shell scripting is not real programming, many practical tasks can be accomplished using shell scripts. Worked-out examples can be used as templates for similar projects.

Prerequisites

None. This is an introductory workshop and is targeted at new users to Linux/Unix.

System Requirements

This is a bring-your-own-laptop event. Make sure that a terminal application (e.g. ssh or PuTTY) is installed. A modern web browser (on Windows preferably Firefox) is required for use of the OnDemand web portal.
