hii,

currently on macos / void linux, I mostly work in the terminal + web browser these days. i decided to sign up after reading nixers for a while.

i work in academia, recently enjoyed reading https://www.datascienceatthecommandline.com and hope you will too.

Hello piotr,
Welcome to the forums.
I like how data science fits well with Unix, the idea of constructing and manipulating data sets.

it does, especially make comes in handy to both manage and document workflows.

there are some areas though where the "bare" unix is not sufficient, especially job control (batch systems required -- slurm is cool, makeflow is cooler) and reproducible results (hence scientists often using docker & singularity).

Welcome.

Learning to use curl, pup and jq changed the way how I scrape data off the web and manipulate json. Before, I'd rely on Python and JavaScript. No longer!
