Unix Tools

Online course

This year, this course is being delivered online (for the first time), in the form of a series of prerecorded video lectures (now complete). This change is in response to feedback from students in previous years, who wanted more opportunity to immediately try the material presented on a computer. Feedback on this new format will be much appreciated.

I will be available in the Intel Lab Tuesdays and Thursdays 11:00-12:00 to distribute printed lecture notes, answer questions, and assist students with doing the exercises.

Most of the tools discussed in the course can be explored and used on the MCS Linux installation in the Computer Laboratory’s Teaching Lab, which is currently a customized version of Ubuntu Linux 16.04. Problems with MCS Linux should be reported to [Javascript required] [but feel free to cc to me (mgk25) as well].
