Building your Programming Tool Box: Command Line Crash Course for Beginners

Building your Programming Tool Box: Command Line Crash Course for Beginners

This hands-on introduction to the command line interface is part 1 of a four-part series called Building Your Programming Toolbox. 

This is a hands-on introduction to using the command line interface. This workshop is designed for those who are beginning their exploration into command-line programming and anyone seeking to refresh their skills. A command line interface (CLI) is a quick and efficient way to perform computing tasks. A few of the topics that will be introduced include navigating the directory structure, commonly used commands, working with files and directories, and more.

If you are a hands on learner and want to follow along, you’ll want to have access to Bash Shell. If you use macOS or Linux then you should have Bash already installed. For those on Windows OS, you may need to install a bash shell. Git Bash installation is one option for installing Bash Shell.
