Practical Linux Course
Designed for researchers, including PhD students and postdocs, this course provides attendees with an introduction to the Linux operating system. Linux powers more than 90% of the world’s supercomputers, most internet servers, and more than a billion Android devices. Additionally, bioinformatics depends heavily on Linux since a lot of scientific software is written specifically for it.
This short and concise hands-on course will teach you how to effectively use Linux using the command line interface. You will be able to swiftly start using Linux both on a server, e.g., the LUMC Shark cluster, as well as on your personal computer. Learning outcomes:
- Understand and navigate through the filesystem structure.
- Obtain information about files and directories.
- Manipulate, i.e., create, delete, move, and rename files and directories.
- Inspect and edit files content.
- Gather disk storage information.
- Search for and within files.
- Manage file and directory access permissions.
- Connect to other computers.
