Today I spent a lot of time preparing for [Write/Speak/Code] Chicago’s Own Your Expertise workshop, but I paused for a moment to remind myself what chown command is.

chown is a linux command that’s really a shorthand for saying Change Owner. It’s used to set permissions for files, directories and links in on a given computer.

Doing a bit of digging, I found a great article from Julia Evans about their dive into linux commands called You can be a kernel hacker! and I’m super excited to get more of these commands under my belt.
