Are you tired of Duo? Do you waste time entering your password every time you log in or do a file transfer? Do you want to automate repetitive tasks? This workshop shows participants how to remove much of the tedium that arises while performing computational research. Learn about suppressing Duo, password-less logins, aliases and shell functions, symbolic links, writing custom commands, and automating your data analysis.

Workshop format: Mostly hands-on with some lecture

Target audience: This workshop was created for users of the Research Computing clusters seeking to improve their working efficiency.

Knowledge prerequisites: Basic Linux and some experience with a scripting language (e.g., Python or R).

Hardware/software prerequisites: Users must have an account on the Adroit cluster, and they should confirm that they can SSH into Adroit at least a few hours beforehand. Details on all of the above can be found in this guide:

Learning objectives: Attendees will learn about various ways to streamline their research workflow and automate day-to-day tasks.
