An Introduction to the Unix shell environment

Hello Developers!

This month we'll be learning about the Unix shell environment. If you do any sort of development, chances are you've run into some sort of Unix shell. You'll find them on a web server, a Linux or Mac desktop, a production server or somewhere else.

We'll be hearing from Claude Jager-Rubinson, Assistant Professor of Sociology at University of Houston-Downtown. He'll show us how he's been using shell scripting for in his daily work of conducting social science research. 

Our meetup is located at START Houston, a co-working space at 1121 Delano St., just east of downtown Houston, TX. Please RSVP (even if you're a "Maybe"!) to assist us with capacity planning.

Share your Lightning Talks! A "lightning talk" is a quick mini-presentation (5 minutes maximum) on any development  topic you'd like.  We'll save time for 2-3 of these each month: to save a spot, post a comment with your talk's title/topic. Beginner topics are always welcome!

Presentations Wanted: If you'd like to share a topic with the group at an upcoming, let's talk!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
