There are certain skills that will stay with you your entire life. One of those skills is learning to automate things. There is a motto for automation that gets straight to the point, "If it isn't automated...it's broken". In this course, you learn to adopt this mindset. In one of the many examples, you will create automation code that will traverse a filesystem, find files that match a pattern, and then detect which files are duplicates. Following the course, you will be able to automate many common file system tasks and be able to manage and communicate with Unix processes.
