Bash scripting for beginners

Abstract: The command line is a quick and powerful text-based interface to Linux computers that allows us to accomplish a wide set of tasks very efficiently. In this workshop, we will focus on writing and running scripts and functions in Bash. Scripts are great for simplifying and automating your workflows on any computer with Bash installed, whether it is your own laptop or a remote HPC cluster (where the command line is often the only available interface). You don't need to know Bash to attend this workshop, as we will start from the basics and will slowly build up our skills using many hands-on examples.


Prerequisites: If you want to follow along the hands-on part of this workshop, you will need a terminal emulator. Linux and MacOS probably already have one, and Windows users can install the free version of MobaXterm (see https://mobaxterm.mobatek.net/download.html for installation). With MobaXterm you can run a local terminal emulator, and we will also provide access to a remote Linux system.
