Scared of the command line? Overcome your feat and attend this introductory workshop on the Bash shell! You will learn how to navigate your file system and automate tasks to make your life easier.

Time and Place

Where: Room 7010, Library Research Commons, SFU Burnaby Campus

When: Tuesday, November 21st, 2017 at 3:00 PM



Required Preparation

Assumed Knowledge

This is meant as an introductory workshop, so no prior knowledge is assumed.

Software Dependencies

You will need to have Bash installed. Mac OS X and Linux users should already have it (accessible in their Terminal app). The easiest way for Windows users to obtain Bash is Git for Windows, although Git won't be covered in this workshop. If you're an advanced user running Windows 10, you could look into enabling the Windows Subsystem for Linux. See the installation instructions here.


Lessons Notes:
We will follow the Software Carpentry Lesson "The Unix Shell":


Cheat sheet

Etherpad: TBA
