This week the CSC is holding a talk and another installment in our unix tutorials.
The talk, entitled 'BareMetal OS' will be Today at 04:30 PM in MC4021. It will be presented by Ian Seyler of Return Infinity, the company that created BareMetal. Light refreshments will be provided.
Talk Abstract: BareMetal is a new 64-bit OS for x86-64 based computers. The OS is written entirely in Assembly, while applications can be written in Assembly or C/C++. High Performance Computing is the main target application.
We will also be holding Unix 103 on Wednesday October 6 at 4:30pm, in a lab to be announced. Unix 103 will cover version control systems and how to use them to manage your projects. Unix 101 would be helpful, but all that is needed is basic knowledge of the Unix command line (how to enter commands).
