The Information Technology Living-Learning Community, among the more active academic-themed housing clusters within Penn College’s Residence Life Office, gained insight into scriptwriting for the Linux operating system Tuesday. The group regularly holds recreational and instructional get-togethers in a variety of locations on and off campus, and gathered in a Breuder Advanced Technology and Health Sciences Center computer lab for the afternoon session. Sandra Gorka, an associate professor of computer science in the School of Business and Computer Technologies – and one of the faculty members who generously share their expertise with the residential IT group’s members – walked the students through the process of writing scripts to automatically accomplish prescribed tasks.
