Using Python to Interact with the Operating System Week 3 Solution

Using Python to Interact with the Operating System WEEK 3 Qwiklabs Assessment Coursera  by Google. Welcome to Using Python to Interact with the Operating System. You’re joining thousands of learners currently enrolled in the course. This course is a part of Google IT Automation with Python Professional Certificate. Qwiklabs Assessment : “Working with Regular Expressions”

I’m excited to have you on my channel and look forward to your contributions to the learning community. By the end of this course:

  1. 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
  2. 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.

-:Skills you will learn:-

  • Setting up your Development Environment
  • Regular Expression (REGEX) 
  • Testing in Python 
  • Automating System Administration Tasks with Python
  • Bash Scripting
