Living in a shell? Try coding in one! Practical programming aims to introduce useful programming tools to the programmer. The workshop will cover useful UNIX filters, Regular Expressions (with applications in other programming languages) and Shell Scripting. Attendees will take away a set of useful skills which can be used for any type of programming in the future (especially on UNIX, the OS for real men (and women)), including project work and programming competitions. We recommend a bit of knowledge in any programming language for those who wish to participate in this workshop, but this is not a strict requirement. (P.S. Shell scripting looks like hacking...)
