Learning the Shell, Fall 2023
Course: COMP 141-001 / COMP 400D-001 Intro to Computing Tool
Level: Undergraduate and Graduate
Instructor: Daniel Moreira (email@example.com)
Teaching Assistants: Alvaro Delandaluce (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Bright Duffour (email@example.com)
Despite the current era of rich graphical user interfaces (desktop, web, and mobile), the “command line” experience remains important, especially for software developers and computer-aided scientific researchers. Many development scenarios still require command line and fluency in Unix tools, including the modern embedded, cloud, cybersecurity, and supercomputing environments. With mobile computing and Internet of Things, Unix (via Linux) has risen to the level of a ubiquitous platform, owing to its lightweight and open-source nature. While this course does not aim at being a comprehensive programming class, students will master basic programming skills using shell scripting. They will also learn about problem-solving using Unix commands supported by shell scripts.
