“For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.”

Welcome to the Python tutorial of the group “Micromechanical Materials Modelling” of the “Institute of Mechanics and Fluid Dynamics”. The goal of this tutorial is to introduce the basic tools used in our everyday scientific worklife by actually performing such tasks. We will start with a brief introduction to the Unix Shell in which we list the most common commands and what they do.
