The Linux operating system is the de facto standard for High Performance Computing, because of its stability and security. It is free to download, use, and modify.

In this workshop, you will learn the basics of Linux, and learn how to perform everyday tasks (download/install software, navigate the filesystem, etc.) on Linux.

If you have never used Linux, or if you would like a refresher to the absolute basics, this workshop is for you.
