Before, we had you use the terminal in Ubuntu a bit to get and open up IDLE, but the terminal will be the primary way we will work so it'd be nice to know your way around it.
This is an extremely important introduction. This quick series of eight tutorials will show you most of what you need to do to manuver your way through the terminal.
For practice: Make a text file called text1 in the home directory which just contains your first name; create a folder called textfolder in the home directory, then move text1 into that folder. Change directories to get into that folder, then read the file text1 with the cat command. Next, change the file text1 to only contain the word "sunshine". Then delete the file text1 and the folder textfolder.
[Hint: here, you're going to use the cat command a bunch. To change the file to contain the word "sunshine", you may use the following 'trick': type echo "sunshine" > text1 which will replace the contents of text1 with the word "sunshine". We will use this trick a bunch, so remember it.]
