Each presentation slot is 50 minutes, except tutorials which have a double slot of one hour and 40 minutes. It is expected that your talk will go for approximately 40 minutes, with 10 minutes for questions, unless you prefer to take questions during your presentation. For tutorials, it is assumed that questions will be asked during the tutorial rather than at the end. Room monitors will be stationed in each conference room and will help guide you

with timing and identifying questions from the audience. You will need to have practiced beforehand however to ensure that you don't go significantly over or under time.

Revision as of 14:14, 27 January 2016

Prerequisites

This is a tutorial, and has hands-on exercises for you to do to help understand the material presented. Please make sure that:

  • You can use a text editor (vi emacs nano gedit — I don't care)
  • You have a laptop with plenty of charge. There will be some power available; I don't know how much.
  • You can get access to a Bourne compatible shell. Most machines will have /bin/sh as a link to a Bourne-compatible shell. Such shells include:
    • dash
    • bash
    • ksh

Material

We'll be using only standard commands — ls sed awk grep test etc. One non-standard command you may wish to install for the first exercise is sysvbanner. On Debian or Ubuntu do:

apt-get install sysvbanner

It doesn't seem to be available for CentOS, but for RedHAT and Fedora you can do:

yum install banner

To save time (and contention on the server at tutorial time) please grab

 http://ssrg.nicta.com.au/Downloads/lca16/shell-tut-examples.tgz

and unpack it with

 tar xzvf shell-tut-examples.tgz

This will save you typing time, and provide the data files you need for the final exercises.
