CAR training: There are many great and complex tools out there for the daily work of data journalists. But one of the most powerful tool is also most underestimated: The command line of your computer. From simple data analysis to complex document processing – with a few tricks you could do most of the work just within your terminal. And it's even faster and more efficient than big software. In this workshop with real world examples we will discuss helpful commands, how to build a data processing pipeline out of them, how to get useful insights out of your document collections and even how to speed up work via multiprocessing. Bring your own computer, everybody is welcome: Beginners, experts and even windows users.
