Tutorials on
Introduction to Linux ... and ... Unix Shell

IEEE CAS Bangalore chapter is conducting a Three-day Workshop on Embedded Linux and Android on Beaglebone Black during 10-12, January 2015 in association with UniTI (Texas Instruments India University Program) and IEEE Bangalore section.
Since the workshop needs the participants to have a background in Unix to appreciate the training, for those with no prior exposure to Unix and embedded Linux, two one-day tutorials were organized on November 4 and December 17, 2014. The training covered a brief history of Unix and Linux, a user perspective of Unix, Hands-on use of tcsh commands and General-purpose vs Embedded Linux.

Participants during the Hands-on tutorial

The workshops were well attended by the registered participants for the workshop, and was kept open to even students keen on the aspects.
The feedback towards the tutorial were positive, and the participants summarized it as:
Enabled imparting the basic knowledge of Unix/Linux to utilize in future projects
Time management was pretty much good with knowledgeable speakers, that enabled to learn a few new things not come across earlier
Useful to the freshers on Unix scripting that helped learn basic scripting to improvize skills. Commands were clearly explained, and the talk with Q& with Dr. Ravikumar was encouraging. The modules were crisp & concise and well structured with adequate hands-on
Hands on training, history of a few topics and Practical examples were good.

Many also expressed desires for a more detailed & dedicated tutorial specially for the students and faculty in the future. The event consisted of many IEEE members.
