Most IT automation will revolve around interacting with custom systems or infrastructure. Explore some of the tools that can be used to manipulate the configuration of the software or hardware in your environment.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • work with the Linux shell to change, copy, create, and view directories and files
    use the VIM editor to insert, delete, append, and save data to files
    view file contents using built-in shell commands like cat, tac, more, less, head, and tail
    identify Linux file permissions and how they are associated with world, group, and individual user access
    compare files and directories using the diff, wc, and nl commands
    manipulate the contents of files using cut, uniq, and sort
    use pipes and output redirection to manipulate file output and contents
  • describe the RegEx language and how it can be used to match against data
    find files on a device by matching against RegEx expressions using grep
    replace the contents of files by using the sed command and regular expressions
    use regular expressions in Python to find matching expressions in strings
    use regular expressions and shell commands to filter log data and find critical events
    validate string data by using regular expressions to check for matches to email addresses, phone numbers, hex numbers, URLs, and IP addresses
    manipulate the contents of files and find patterns using regular expressions
