Acerca del Curso

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to manipulate files and processes on your computer’s operating system. You’ll also have learned about regular expressions -- a very powerful tool for processing text files -- and you’ll get practice using the Linux command line on a virtual machine. And, this might feel like a stretch right now, but you’ll also write a program that processes a bunch of errors in an actual log file and then generates a summary file. That’s a super useful skill for IT Specialists to know. We’ll kick off by exploring how to execute Python locally, and organize and use code across different Python files. We'll then learn how to read and write different types of files, and use subprocesses and input streams. We'll also dive into Bash scripting and regular expressions -- both very powerful tools for anyone working with systems. We'll even touch on automatic testing, which allow us to automate how we check if our code is correct. To finish, we’ll put all this together by using the tools that we’ve acquired to process data and generate automatic reports. We’ll also explain how to set up your own developer environment in your machine. This is a key step in being able to write and deploy powerful automation tools....

In starting five weeks , all answers were directly provided and week 6 and 7 were very tough. So i suggest to equalize the toughness level in all weeks ,ie, no direct spoon feed nor abrupt toughness

Great course! I had some previous knowledge, but this was perfect to fill in the gaps. Also, unit testing was completely new to me and will be very useful in future projects. Thanks for making this!

The course gives a great start in tools like Python, Bash, Unix commands, Regular Expressions, ... With the qwiklab assignments one can test the learning practically. Lovely teachers, easy to listen to.

The course takes some time, when you practise and really try to do your own mini projects in parallel. But isn't that the whole idea? To learn new skills and not just finish the course.

I truly recommend going through this course and each courses of this certification. There are many things I already knew from being a freelancer in programming but materials being taught here is better than any school courses I went to. I had to learn everything on my own from the internet but this certification is actually giving you everything you need. Recommend! Thanks Google!

Wise teaching method. The cloud is interesting. The assignments challenge you to work hard and the important key concepts are covered during the course. Good instructor. Thank you. I learned to use a wider IT toolbox with different data structure in an assignment so it gave me a better insight for how to plan my approach for a more complex task and organize my research & planning.

Loved the course. The instruction was good and just enough to create real world situations of needing to review documentation during some exercises. The cheat sheets were some times not cheat sheets, but links to documentation; however, some of the links were to great sites when they were not to the official python docs. I really appreciated this course. I'm better.

Really enjoyed the course, Thanks Roger Martinez for the pleasant, straightforward explanations and creators for well packed content, rather say a brisk course at all, no nonsense - total value for the time spend.

The course added a new set of tool in my skill toolbox, that can be used with prior consideration for many IT based problems in future. Thanks to coursera.

This course teaches how to use Python to automate system administration and real world tasks. It illustrates how to apply programming to automate tasks that would been otherwise hard or impossible to complete. This is a power tool to have in our toolset of IT specialists. Thanks to the instructor, to Google and Coursera for this unique opportunity.

It is an excellent start to shell, Linux and Bash scripting. I have learned tons of practical real-world concepts in this course. As an instructor, Randy Martinez has taken learners through challenging concepts and I commend him for that. You will need to have a solid background in python, though. For me, it was an unforgettable learning experience.

E​xcellent course overall. The last project was fantastic except the version of python I'm using is 3.97 and the version on the student machine is 3.52. The dictionary update didn't work, so I used bash for the headers. The regex grouping uses different syntax to extract from the line also. But I really enjoyed the exercise and I am getting better.

¡Excelente curso! Aprendí realmente mucho más de lo que pensé, y la modalidad de enseñanza es excepcional, pues no sólo se brindan explicaciones claras y completas, sino que además se establecen legítimos escenarios de práctica, donde los estudiantes podemos poner en juego todos los aprendizajes logrados, en casos reales. Realmente muy recomendado.

The course started off with basic Python functions and commands used on a Linux terminal and slowly developed into teaching about file handling and functioning of system calls, signals, and more commands. Highly recommended for individuals with basic knowledge of Python and Linux terminal who want to dive deeper into the field of file manipulation.

This is a wonderful course, made with soul. This is a wonderful story in simple words about complex topics. Huge thanks to the amazing creators and Google Corporation. I am a refugee from Ukraine studying to find a job and this course has been a huge support for me and my family during a difficult time after russia's dastardly attack on Ukraine.

Wasnt very sure of the qwiklab evaluations till week 5 because they were so very easy but week 6 & 7 were the best they really test your gains from the course. Highly recommended for all who want an detailed explanations on basics of REGEX and BASH.. I would definitely recommend the course to anyone who is planning to start a career on Python

I had come into this course with a intermediate to advanced knowledge of Python, but the specifics on using it to interact with the operating system were new to me. Already I have used what I learned in this course to automate a text data labeling task I was doing for work as a freelance data scientist. Definitely worth the time!

This is a remarkably well-written course that builds seamlessly on the "Crash Course in Python" predecessor in the certificate. I have a Linux laptop and coded all the examples and labs locally. The final two labs are very challenging and demand intermediate-level skills. I'm very impressed with the Coursera / Google combo.

The quality of this course is legit brilliant. I'll recommend it to everyone out there. A great add-on to an already existing IT degree and a great experience for a first-timer too. From explanations to examples to tests to real-world problems, this course is like no other! I feel there's value here for everyone. Much love!

Great course. It will guide you from the very basics on, the last lab is great since you will need to put a huge amount of the knowlege you have gathered through out the course in practice. The regex part is great and you might get something from there even if you are experienced in IT but haven't used regex that much.

Fun stuff to lean. Some topics such as regex and bash are something that I always wanted to learn but unable to find a structured learning material. This course is a great attempt in combining multiple IT skills in a structured and fun way. Good job Google team. Thanks for making this course possible and available.

Although the videos are very easy to understand, without practice and you may get general understanding of how python works with OSs, but who wants to progress and code like a pro needs a lot of exercises and practice and study. Thank you GOOGLE for the course and looking forward to the next courses.

Its a really cool Course with a good instructor. I really felt like I learned a lot of new stuff. Examples are Regex or Bash. Don't get me wrong I used Regex or Bash before but never really understood it (Only in like copy/paste scripts). So for me, this course made a big difference :) Thanks

Was really nice. I learned a lot! Especially helpful was that the last two asignments were not as detailly guided as the ones before. That really forced me to do it by myself! I really got the feeling of biting a lot until I got the code to work. Well not "a lot" but still a little bit :)

Really interesting course. After the crash course in Python, this got exponentially more detailed and trickier. Final assignment was a killer! Had to spend 3 days thinking of various permutations/combinations to get the code to work. Huge learning - EVERY LITTLE DETAIL is important!

This is a very useful and knowledgeable course. I'm satisfied with my progress for quite a new IT programming skills in Linux OS and Bash scripting language. Thank Roger Martinez for clear explanations for each module and the interesting scenario for tasks included for assessment.

Pretty useful, the only thing that I didn't like that much was the extremely guided Qwiklabs, but it was pretty nice at the end. The course was not so easy to digest but the content is complicated so this was expected, after a couple of examples everything was clear as water.
