Research Computing and Data Workshop Series: Workshop: Advanced Unix Shell

Thursday, May 13, 2021 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

New in 2021! We are pleased to bring to the UCF Research community a series of workshops on scientific computing and research data management. These workshops are being jointly presented by UCF LibrariesUCF Graduate and Research IT, and UCF Advanced Research Computing Center (ARCC) and will feature some guest speakers from the broader research community. This series also includes Software and Data Carpentries workshops ( which have been made possible through the sponsorship of Dr. Elizabeth Klonoff, Vice President for Research and Dean, College of Graduate Studies.

The workshops are targeted to faculty, post-docs and student researchers and will be especially useful for those who are new to computational science and interested in learning about the resources available to them at UCF and beyond. Topics span the areas of research data management, high-performance computing, and programming for scientific analysis and will feature some sessions with hands-on learning.

The May 13 session details are:

Title: Workshop: Advanced Unix Shell


The "shell" in Unix is a generic term for the program that provides the basic user interface to the system. Typically, this would be a command line interface, but might also include a graphical interface (e.g., "gnome shell"). This workshop will cover commands common to most variations of Unix and Unix command line interface shells. The second hour of this workshop of this will explore shell commands and solutions inspired by participant questions and problems.
