1.1 Getting Started (An Introduction)

Complete: 5
Detailed Review status

In this chapter we cover initial information about getting set up with computing accounts and basic tools so that you’re ready to run the tutorials in this Workbook. We cover:

  • Discussing the computing concepts that you are assumed to understand before going through the Workbook, e.g., Linux, C++, CVS, ROOT. Don't miss the appendices (at the end of the Essentials part of the Workbook, after chapter 5); they can help you get up to speed on some of these concepts.

  • Providing pointers to information resources beyond the Workbook. Find out about software reference material, meetings, hypernews forums, CERN and CMS-specific web pages, and more. The Workbook doesn't stand alone in the world of CMS-related information!

  • How to prepare for a visit to CERN, and what to do once you arrive; e.g., how to get to CERN, whose signatures you need, what documentation to bring, and so on.
