“The command line is the ultimate seat of power on your computer. Using the command line, you can perform amazing feats of wizardry and speed, taming your computer and getting it to do precisely what you want.” –David Baumgold
Learning a little bit about the command line will make learning programming easier, because many programming languages are run from the command line interface (CLI), instead of from a graphical user interface (GUI)—meaning you type commands, instead of clicking on icons.
We’ll hold this workshop at Loussac Library’s Innovation Lab (4th Floor) at 6:00pm on February 19th. As always, this workshop is free. If you can make it, please register:
If you can’t make it, here are two tutorials that might be helpful:
- LifeHacker’s Command Line for Beginners: Goes over a lot of the same material we will in this workshop.
- Command Line Crash Course – Learn Code the Hard Way: The name sounds off-putting, but they write good tutorials.
