Data Science with Unix Power Tools
Speaker: Jeroen Janssens
The unix command line, although invented decades ago, is an amazing environment for efficiently performing tedious but essential data science tasks. By combining small, powerful, command-line tools (like parallel, jq, and csvkit), you can quickly clean and explore your data and hack together prototypes.
This hands-on workshop is based on the book Data Science at the Command Line, written by instructor Jeroen Janssens. You'll learn how to build fast data pipelines, how to leverage R and Python at the command line, and how to quickly visualise data.
