The UNIX Bootcamp is recommended for all students in the MPCS who do not already have a background in UNIX.

This workshop will provide the necessary UNIX and Linux competency for MPCS coursework.  UNIX/Linux are required for a large majority of MPCS courses, and competency will help ensure your success.  

The workshop will consist of both presentation and interactive exercises, with opportunity for hands-on assistance. The topics we will cover are:

  •  Navigating the filesystem
  • File permissions
  • Process management
  • Bash shell configuration and scripting 
  • Remote authentication
  • Language-specific configurations for C/C++, Python, and Java

The UNIX Bootcamp will be taught by Ron Rahaman.
