Courses - Network Workflow

Course Description

Students will learn the basic computing systems and conventions underlying networked, web, and asynchronous project production. Before digital creators make their work public or collaborate with others across a network they must first master the tools necessary to connect to servers, move files, maintain versions, and otherwise operate in a digital workplace. This class will focus on standard web environments like Unix and Linux servers, but the clients used to connect to those servers will be standard Windows and OS X programs.

Course Goals

Upon completing the course, students will have:

  • been introduced to Linux-based command line operations, permissions, and file versioning tools.
  • been exposed to patterns used in setting up the file structure of a web site.
  • developed an understanding of file operations and basic security.
  • prepared to publish content in a network environment.
