UNIX for beginners
Cover the basics of UNIX under the guidance of an expert at the Victorian Life Sciences Computation Initiative
The Unix operating system is commonplace in scientific computing centres such as the VLSCI, but it can be an obstacle for new users. This workshop provides an introduction to Unix for people who have little or no prior experience. Guided by Dr Bernard Pope, participants will undertake hands–on activities to learn how to use Unix effectively and take advantage of its unique features to increase their productivity.
