About This Workshop

With the full data analytics workflow under your belt, learn how to access databases with SQL and write basic SQL queries.

This free, 2-hour workshop gives you a foundation in databases, how they work, and when to use which SQL tool to access data. From there, you’ll get hands-on practice with basic SQL syntax, and cover more advanced features like joining, grouping, filtering, and functions.

You’ll leave this workshop with the confidence to continue exploring the world of data analytics, and a solid foundation to keep building on. If you still have questions about what a bootcamp or a career in data analytics looks like, make sure to join us next week for a live Meet-the-Team session where we’ll cover the basics and answer all of your data analytics questions.
