There are 3 really powerful tools that every Linux / UNIX professional should know: grep, SED, and AWK.
Our grep, SED and AWK Best Practices training course will give you hands-on experience with all three.
grep is accessed via the command-line and is used for querying plain-text data sets using regular expressions.
SED (short for Stream Editor) is used for parsing and sequentially applying transformations to text.
AWK is a data extraction and reporting tool, controlled by a scripting language for producing formatted reports.
If you would like to discuss custom / on-site Linux admin / tools training for any size of team, please get in touch – we would be glad to help build a course that meets your learning requirements.
We can take into account your existing technical skills, preferred Linux / UNIX distribution, project requirements and timeframes, and specific topics of interest to tailor the most relevant and focussed course for you.
