The Unix shell is a powerful tool that allows people to do complex things with just a few keystrokes. You can combine existing programs in different ways and automate repetitive tasks so you don’t need to type things over and over again. This workshop will go over the basics of the Unix shell, starting with working with files and directories, using pipes and filters, and a little bit of shell scripting.
