Workshop Details

So many reference materials, open source tools, blog posts, and job descriptions assume command-line proficiency, but the resources for learning the command-line effectively are scattered and largely unhelpful for people who aren't already familiar with how to get by in a unix system.

Is This Workshop for Me?


This workshop is for people who want to become effective at the command-line. Students should be comfortable computer users, but no programming or prior command-line experience is required.

If you've recently learned some programming, plan to learn programming soon, or have been programming for a while but never got around to learning the command-line and a unix system in depth, this workshop is for you!
