The Command Line is your friend

Day:  Thursday, 26. august 2010
Time:  13:30-14:30
45 minutes (+15 minutes Q&A)



This session will introduce you to the wonderful and powerful tool of working from a *nix command line interface (CLI) instead of using a GUI (pointy-clicky). This is targeted at folks who've never opened a terminal before, but will cover a number of tips and tricks along the way. We'll even show you how Windows users can get the same CLI that Linux and Mac users use, so you can use it too!

Main points we'll cover:
- Huh? What is this thing? How do I get one?
- Moving around (both locally and accessing a remote server)
- Creating and editing files
- Searching
- How to install Drupal from only the command line (including the database!)
