Linux Appeal ONLINE 26 & 27 April 2023

This one-day interactive online course (over two morning sessions) will give you an introduction to Linux and its ability to process big data files fast. Exercises will show the speed and efficiency of Linux tools compared to other data processing tools such as R or Excel. Exercises will take place in pairs or small groups in a virtual breakout room. The facilitator will move from room to room to support you.

You will log in to a training account and familiarise yourself with the Linux environment. You will learn to use basic commands such as ls, cd, mv, rm, less, and history. We will discuss different types of regular expressions as used in Linux commands. You will do practical exercises and we encourage you to bring your own dataset.

You will learn advanced Linux tools such as grep, find, rsync, diff, cut, rename, awk and sed commands. We will explore bash scripting. The course will end with a final file merging task you can solve in several different ways. We will invite you to produce your own solution to produce the desired result.
