In this course, you’ll learn how to navigate the filesystem, how to alter permissions for different users, and how to create and run a Python script from the command line. You’ll also learn how to use the terminal on UNIX machines and how to use the command line’s powerful text processing tools like awk and sed. The lack of a graphical user interface (GUI) also makes the command line faster than other approaches for many tasks.
Best of all, you’ll learn by doing — you’ll practice and get feedback directly in the browser. When you finish the course, you’ll have enough hands-on practice that you’ll be comfortable using the command line in your day-to-day data analysis tasks.
