Our "Introduction to Linux for HPC" workshop is a free, interactive workshop that provides a pragmatic introduction to GNU/Linux and the command line. The workshop allows users to begin interacting with the shell and using GNU/Linux in day-to-day environments, such as the RCC.
The workshop focuses on using GNU/Linux within the context of the RCC, but the course may have general appeal even for those attendees who do not use the RCC.
How to Prepare
This is an interactive, hands-on workshop. Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop computer if you are able to so that you can follow along during the presentation.
Before the workshop begins, be sure that you have installed a Linux environment on your computer. If you have a Mac or Linux computer, you are already set. If you have a Windows computer, I encourage you to download and install the Linux Subsystem for Windows. This will allow you to follow along.
If you want, you can sign-up for an RCC account on our website. However, this is not necessary. If you do not have an account already, we will provide you a temporary account to use on our system during the
By the end of this workshop, attendees will be able to connect to and interact with popular GNU/Linux distributions, including those used at the RCC. Attendees will also gain familiarity with basic systems administration concepts as they relate to GNU/Linux.
