THE UNIX COMMAND LINE
For Artists and Activists (and others)
This 4 day intensive workshop teaches participants the UNIX command line interface, a rapidly growing and ubiquitous interface common to every computer from the UNIX family of operating systems - whether web-server, Internet appliance, wireless router, autonomous robot, Raspberry Pi, OS X or Linux laptop.

No prior knowledge of computer networking, programming or command line interaction is required.
Using only the Command Line, learn how to:
