This repository has teaching materials for a 2 hour, hands-on Intermediate bash workshop led at a relaxed pace. Many tools for the analysis of big data require knowledge of the command line, and this workshop will build on the basic skills taught in the Introduction to the command-line interface workshop to allow for greater automation. This workshop will include lessons on using the command-line text editor, Vim, to create and edit files, utilizing for-loops for automation, using variables to store information, and writing scripts to perform a series of commands in a sequential order.
- Learning basic operations using the Vim text editor
- Capturing previous commands into a script to re-run with one single command
- Understanding variables and storing information
- Learning how to use variables to operate on multiple files
These materials are developed for a trainer-led workshop, but also amenable to self-guided learning.
