  • Command-Line Kung Fu: White Belt

    by Hal Pomeranz

    I teach Linux/Unix skills to hundreds of students every year. Many of them are relatively inexperienced with the Unix command line and I see them getting frustrated or taking round-about approaches to solving problems, when in reality just knowing a few simple tricks would make them vastly more productive.

    Topics covered include:
    -- Command line history and tab completion skills
    -- Fun with find and xargs
    -- Loop constructs
    -- cut vs. awk
    -- sort and uniq

    The talk is interactive and full of live demos. Students can bring their own laptops and play along.

    At 1:45pm to 3:30pm, Thursday 18th June
