ACM UMN is teaching UNIX classes the next four Fridays in Mechanical Engineering room 108 from 12:00 to 1:00. The first UNIX Class will be on shell basics. If you've never really used UNIX or the command line before, this is a great primer. Mesa pizza will also be proved. We will have vegan and vegetarian options available. No prior knowledge of UNIX is required, just bring yourself, your computer, and a hunger for pizza.
