Computing Seminars/Talks: An introduction to Linux for scientists
1 March 2017 16:00 in CM301
The talk will provide a short description of the Linux operating system, explaining some of the basic features of Linux. I will then talk about software and accomplishing some basic tasks on Linux, such as installing Linux, installing software from repository vs. compiled package vs. source, converting from image, ps files to pdf, basic terminal commands, taking ownership of locked files on linux, and encryption to safeguard files and research.

This series of talks/seminars has the intention of sharing some practical computing skills in the department.
The talks are primarily aimed at PhD students in the early part of their PhDs, though they might also be of interest to students further through their PhDs and perhaps even others in the department. The idea is for older PhD students, and maybe other researchers, to share some tips and techniques that they’ve learnt from their own research in whichever software tools they use. It is hoped that this way we can share some useful tips and techniques and avoid new researchers having to spend a long time googling for ways to solve some common problems.
Supplementary files for these talks can be found here.
