This beginner friendly course is specifically designed to show you how to use Bash commands and shell programming to handle textual data which can be a csv format data or systems log file. In this course you will learn Bash by doing projects.
This course starts with some practical bash-based flat file data mining projects involving:
- University ranking data;
- Facebook data;
- AU crime data; and
- Shakespeare era plays and poems data (text mining)
All data sets and documentations are included.
If you haven’t used Bash before, feel free to skip the projects and get to the tutorials part (supporting materials: eBook). Read the tutorials and then come back to the projects again. The tutorial section will introduce with bash scripting, regular expressions, AWK, sed, grep and so on.
