Being comfortable in a Unix command line environment is a common skill required by developers and others in the IT community, yet many of us avoid it like the plague and spend our time googling for tips any time we're forced to use it. No más! After this workshop you'll be able to perform essential functions in terminal, including: navigating directories, opening and editing text files, and using some of the built in tools to help improve your efficiency and confidence in getting tasks done!

* macOS and Linux laptops will have a built in program, Terminal, that we will be using.
* If you have a Windows machine, please install Git Tools for Windows. This software package allows you to run Linux-like commands in a Windows shell. To install Git Tools for Windows, install the Windows Git package from the following URL:
