Edge: Workshop Room

This two-day / six-unit course will provide students with a basic introduction to Linux systems in use in many research departments around campus. Attendees will have access to a Linux computational server to practice various tasks and perform labs in order to familiarize themselves with the environment. The class materials will cover a variety of tasks from those often considered simple, such as logging in, through more advanced tasks like building an application. The course includes lectures, informal Q & A, and hands-on activities/labs. Registration required at: http://training.oit.duke.edu/research
   
Students are required to bring their own laptop computer; access to a Linux system will be provided for the course.

Edge: Workshop Room

While modern tools have made 3D design and printing easier and easier they are difficult and challenging to get started with. In this lunch and learn we will walk through the process of creating a simple model from scratch to product. We will also talk about some of the different tools-of-the-trade and various concepts while focusing on foundational knowledge. Various 3D services at and projects at Duke will also be touched on. Our class will demo SketchUp and one type of 3D printer but the knowledge you gain will be portable to other systems and software.
