Counting and Mining Research Data with Unix

This workshop was on
November 9, 2017

Working with large data sets in numerous files requires rethinking how you approach your initial analysis. Using the Programming Historian lesson "Counting and Mining Research Data with Unix" this session will give you a few tools to analyze your data sets in a way that simply cannot be done using a spreadsheet program like Libre Office or Excel. In this session you will learn:

+ How to generate counts across files
+ How to use grep to mine data
+ How to conduct basic data transformations
+ Why you should properly manage your data

Installation guides and "office hours" for assistance will be provided after registration.
