Graduate Center’s Digital Research Institute – Monday!

Dear Commons Community, 

Yesterday was the first day of the Digital Research Institute being held here at the Graduate Center.  A little more than 50 (mostly doctoral students) are participating in this five-day event. The morning was spent on introductions, loading software onto laptops, and on sharing digital research projects.

The afternoon was an introduction/review of the UNIX command language led by Patrick Smyth.  The purpose of this session was to introduce participants on how to communicate with a computer’s operating system using a text-based interface.   For those of us who remember MS-DOS, many of the commands such as “mkdir” and “ls” in UNIX are very similar.

Good first day!
