Command line programming can be intimidating because we've become so used to graphical user interfaces (GUIs), but if you can get past appearances you’ll discover that scripting in the command line is often more efficient and flexible. Additionally, many programmers believe that learning software like git in the command line interface (CLI) enables greater understanding of the software and its internals (you’ll let us know after our git workshop, right?)
In this workshop, we’ll explore basic commands that will allow you to navigate your file system, move and copy files, search, and enter/exit the python interpreter. After some practice exercises, we’ll learn how to set up environments for our Python-based projects using an awesome tool called Virtualenv, and how to download and install Python packages using the Python package manager pip.
This workshop is for women only.
