ACENET Basics: Introduction to Linux

Event Date:
Wednesday, May 18, 2022
Room:
Virtual
Price:
Free!

Linux is the terminal interface used to enable you to use the ACENET and the Digital Research Alliance of Canada (the Alliance) HPC clusters from your desktop. It's the tool you need to get your data on the clusters, run your programs, and get your data back. In this session, learn how to get started with Linux, how to create and navigate directories for your data, load files, manage your storage, run programs on the computing clusters, and set file permissions. This workshop is designed for those with no prior experience in working with a terminal interface.

This session will be delivered online.

To get the most from ACENET basics, please register for an Alliance account. To register, contact your supervising professor, ask for their CCRI, and then visit https://ccdb.computecanada.ca/account_application. If your professor is not registered with Compute Canada, please have them register and then follow up with you. In addition to an Alliance account, you will want a computer with Windows, MacOS X, or a Unix-based operating system (not a ChromeBook), and a stable internet connection. A registered account is not mandatory, but it is recommended to get the most out of our lessons. You can attend the first session to see how ACENET can assist in accelerating your computational research before you decide to obtain an account, if you wish.

Participants must register using their institutional/organizational email address (not a personal email, i.e., gmail) at https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/acenet-basics-introduction-to-linux-tickets-317567572157

Connections details for the session as well as further preparation information will be sent out prior to the session.
