Interest in Intro to Unix/Linux during January

Director, Wasserman Trading Floor/Subotnick Center
Folks:
I am planning to do a partial day workshop on an introduction to
UNIX and Linux during the January break. This will be done during a
week day likely from 10:00am to 3:00pm with a break for lunch.

The materials will be very introductory. The topics should include:
- Brief history of UNIX
- Brief history of Linux
- Brief discussion of Linux distributions (we will not cover how to install Linux)
- Unix/Linux file system layout and shell
- Logging in using secure shell
- Creating, modifying, manipulating files and directories
- File and directory permissions
- Basic commands (ls, ps, df, mkdir, cd, pwd, kill, top, netstat, etc.)
- Introduction to processes and memory management
- Writing, compiling and running some simple "C", C++, and Java programs.
- Writing and running some simple Perl and Python scripts.
- Creating and viewing a basic HTML page
- Creating and viewing a basic PHP page
- Other topics as they come up.

This will be a "hands on" workshop. I will create demo accounts for
participants on one of the internal Linux machines so all call follow along.

The Baruch College CIS Society students will be the main participants but I
wanted to see if any Baruch MFE students would also be interested.

Unfortunately we can not accommodate students from outside of Baruch.

Feel free to e-mail me or reply back to this note if you would be
interested. Once we nail down a date I will post again.

Cheers,

Prof. H.

****WORKSHOP DETAILS****

In the Information Technology field, Unix is probably one of the most widely used operating systems in both servers and workstations. Unix comes in many flavors, one of the most common is Linux. Linux is a freely available version of the Unix operating system.

Having experience using Linux/UNIX can boost a student's professional career. Many companies working in a server environment will run on these systems and hire the candidate who has such knowledge. In addition, companies today are becoming less dependent on costly proprietary technology and using open-source technology instead (for example, Facebook uses MySQL). The workshop will briefly cover the LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP). Each student will receive a UNIX Username and password for accessing the Linux system at Baruch. At the end of the day, students will learn about the UNIX directory structure, setting directory and file permissions, the UNIX Shell, how to re-direct input/output, using the Pico text editor, running a C Program, and creating a Web Page on UNIX. Below is a list of topics that will be discussed:
  • Brief history of Linux
  • Brief discussion of Linux distributions (we will not cover how to install Linux)
  • Unix/Linux file system layout and shell
  • Logging in using secure shell
  • Creating, modifying, manipulating files and directories
  • File and directory permissions
  • Basic commands (ls, ps, df, mkdir, cd, pwd, kill, top, netstat, etc.)
  • Introduction to processes and memory management
  • Writing, compiling and running some simple "C", C++, and Java programs.
