In our intermediate command line course, you’ll learn to improve your data analysis workflow with concepts such as piping and redirecting output into a file; searching files for a string; and cleaning, exploring, and consolidating data using the command line.
You’ll also learn to work with Jupyter console, an enhanced Python interpreter, to develop scripts. And you’ll learn how to clean and explore data using csvkit, a suite of command line tools for converting and working with CSV formats.
Then you’ll build a project that combines your Python data skills with your new command line expertise — you’ll write Python scripts to compute summary statistics and then run the scripts directly from the command line. When you finish this course, you’ll be able to add “UNIX Command Line” skills to your data science resume!
