Have you heard the term ‘command line’ and wondered what it was?

The command line is a way of interacting with a computer by typing commands instead of pointing and clicking. But it is so much more important than that -- if you are taking your first steps with data and code, knowing your way around the command line is essential. There are also many useful and powerful applications that can help you in your work that only run on the command line -- understanding it opens the door to making use of these power tools.

This session will tell you how the command line works and what it's best at. We'll cover the basic commands and concepts you need to navigate the command line, and I’ll also talk about some of the key tools which can be useful in data investigations, including a few story examples.
