About This Workshop

SQL is a valuable tool and skill to unlocking your company's data. This powerful but simple programming language is used to communicate with databases and is a standard across most online applications. Knowing SQL allows you to gather, analyze and process data from any database you have access to, helping you unlock insights to make better business decisions.

In this workshop, you’ll learn what SQL is, how databases function, and the SQL queries needed to collect data from a database to analyze and find the answers you’re looking for.

Takeaways

  • Background on databases & database structure
  • Connecting to a remote database
  • Finding basic data with SELECT, FROM, WHERE, & ORDER BY
  • Combining data from multiple tables with INNER JOIN
  • Calculating statistics with aggregate functions and GROUP BY

Prereqs & Preparation

This workshop is designed for beginners. No prior knowledge or experience with SQL is required.

What to bring to class: All students must bring their own laptop. Please also download the Sqlectron SQL client here prior to class.

Note on installing Sqlectron: Mac users may need to allow installation of non-app-store programs in their System Preferences
