Intro to Linux on the HPC
May 16 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
This course is for researchers who have never used Linux and/or a computer cluster and introduces concepts and best practices for both.
This course covers how to best exploit the bash shell for both interactive work and batch jobs, moving & simple manipulation of data, as well very short introductions to programming in bash, Perl, and R. This is not computer science; this is a driver’s license.
