Linux Basics (August 2014)
August 4 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
This class teaches the basics of using a Linux system, starting with what Linux is, where it came from, and why you might want to use it.
In addition to a basic introduction to the operating system, students will also get a chance to try out Linux and learn about the following topics:
- Package managers
- Users and permissions
- The Linux Kernel
- Installing Linux
- How to log in and use it
If you have a laptop that can boot from a CD or USB drive, bring it along, you can try Linux on your own laptop without clobbering the operating system that’s installed.
