Introduction to Bash

Day to day work for astronomers and developers is hard to imagine without the use of terminals to navigate through file systems, run programs, and get access to supercomputers.

Knowing how to use Bourne Again SHell (BASH) commands and write basic scripts is an essential skill. In this course, we will cover the basics of working with BASH such as navigating through directories to slightly more advanced topics such as writing scripts.

However, as this is a topic with very broad applications this is only scratching the surface so a collection of materials for further reading is included at the end of the course.

Each module in the course will come with its own webinar explaining its specific contents with examples. Everything covered in the webinar is then written up for your reference in the subsequent lessons.
