planning to have our bootcamps on *Wednesdays, 7-9pm in SOCH 105*. Our
first bootcamp next week will be *Introduction to UNIX*: the UNIX
philosophy, the command line, and writing shell scripts. We'll send out an
email in the next few days with more details.

You'll leave the bootcamp able to understand our scraper demo from the
slides (try running it for yourself!):

cutpoint=$(echo "http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/" | wc -m | grep
'[0-9]\{1,\}' --only-matching); mkdir -p images; curl --silent
http://www.amazon.com/s/\&field-keywords\=ocaml | grep '
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/[0-9A-Za-z\.\_\,\%\\-]\{0,\}.jpg'
--only-matching | while read image; do; suffix=$(echo $image | cut -c
$cutpoint-); wget $image -O images/$suffix; done

If you have any questions about bootcamps, setup, or HCS in general, please
email us at board at hcs.harvard.edu !

Best,
Kenny, HCS Bootcamp Manager
