Users of our supercomputing systems often encounter repeated difficulties in their computational work due to a weak understanding of the Unix operating system and its user interface.
To help users close this gap, the Supercomputing Facility offers an introductory course to Unix/Linux during each semester.
Open to anyone on campus who is interested in learning the basic concepts behind the Unix operating system, or just how to correctly and effectively use it to make everyday’s computing tasks a bit easier, this course is delivered in an interactive format — the instructor will tour the Unix operating system using a live terminal, making sure each new concept is well understood before moving on to the next.
