About this Course

UNIX, Linux, and their variants are wonderful operating systems, with great capabilities of doing data processing. But they are often ignored when people think about solving data problems, or in general, Data Science. This short course provides a hands-on approach to using UNIX/Linux for solving various data problems from sorting and searching to extracting and manipulating information. And all of these without writing any code! That's right. With just a few commands of UNIX, and appropriate combinations of them, one could solve many data problems within seconds without writing thousands of lines or code or spending hours and days.

Basic knowledge
  • This course is for beginners, but it helps to have some basic understanding of operating systems (e.g., finding and launching programs, installing and configuring apps), as well as some basic knowledge of any programming. The course also assumes that you have a way to connect to a UNIX/Linux system. Alternatively, you could install a free utility on your computer that enables you to work on a UNIX-like environment (not needed for a Mac or a Linux desktop)
What you will learn
  • Remotely logging into a UNIX/Linux machine
  • File transfer to a remote machine
  • A basic understanding of some of the common tools useful for doing programming
  • Several basic UNIX commands and utilities
  • Solving several kinds of data problems using UNIX
