Data @ Your Desk Virtual Workshop: Introduction to Linux: Part 1

FSU Libraries presents: Data @ Your Desk Workshop Series

This two-part interactive workshop provides a pragmatic introduction to GNU/Linux and the command line. We cover basic concepts to allow attendees to begin interacting with the shell and using Linux in day-to-day environments.

Attendees will learn about the history of Linux, how operating systems work, kernels and shells, and how to work with files within Linux.

By the end of both days of this workshop, attendees will be able to interact with popular Linux distributions and will also gain familiarity with basic systems administration concepts as they relate to Linux.

How to Prepare:
Before the workshop begins, be sure that you have installed an SSH client on your computer. If you have a Mac or Linux computer, an SSH client is already built into the operating system. If you have a Windows computer, refer to our instructions for how to setup an SSH client here.
