Delegates will undertake a number of tasks including:
Sending an email to all other delegates, without using an email client or web browser, nor having to type their addresses.
Developing a shell pipeline designed to count the *different* words in an essay, and storing this in a script for future use.
Obtaining information from the web without using a web browser.
Producing documents via the LaTeX document system, including ones generated by a script.
Building a web site of photos, including the task of renaming a huge number of image files systematically without needing to deal with them one at time.
