About This Class Series

SQL is a powerful language, and tool, for data analysis and data handling. In this bootcamp, you’ll dive deep into SQL syntax and database structures, while applying your new SQL skills to address business problems. This bootcamp will take absolute beginners through the basics of SQL to an ability to write queries with confidence.

General Assembly’s classes, workshops & events are for recreational purposes and are not regulated by the bureau of proprietary school supervision.

If this class is recorded, students will be sent the recording link within 7 days after class completion by email. Students are encouraged to download and save any shared materials (worksheets, deck if applicable) during class for later reference as they are not be shared by email.

  • Understand the differences between different data management systems for SQL databases
  • Create basic SQL queries by applying Boolean logic, sorting functions, and commenting
  • Apply SQL aggregate functions [MIN, MAX, SUM, AVG, COUNT]
  • Use CAST to change a column’s type for a query
  • Use advanced SQL commands [OR, GROUP BY, HAVING] and conditional operators [ =,!=,>,<, IN, NOT IN, and BETWEEN] to filter data
  • Apply string, date, and math functions to manipulate how data is presented
  • Apply UNION to tables and columns for merging data
  • Use JOINS to create relationships between tables to obtain data

Preparation

  • Students must have a laptop with http://sqlitebrowser.org/ (or their preferred DB browser) pre-installed.
  • Basic technical aptitude and orientation to computers, and curiosity to learn new tools. Willingness to learn about a text-based/principle driven analytic tool with little real GUI support, and determination to push through the natural frustration of confronting new concepts.
  • You will need access to a laptop or computer with a working webcam and microphone as well as a strong internet connection.
  • This class will occur completely online using Zoom.
  • Class setup information will be emailed to all students signed up around 24 hours before (and again an hour before) your class launches.
  • Each individual class participant must have purchased a ticket
