About this workshop

SQL provides powerful but reasonably simple tools for data analysis and handling. This workshop will take absolute beginners through the basics of SQL to an ability to write common types of queries with confidence. We will use a combination of lecture and in-class exercises to ensure that students leave with a working grasp of SQL fundamentals.

Prereqs & Preparation

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.

We will be pausing to let students run and write queries of their own, using a database we will set set up in advance. Students should bring laptops capable of connecting to a remote server via SSH: Mac and Linux laptops will work with no additional setup, and Windows laptops will work if the third-party program PuTTY is installed. If you plan to use a Windows laptop for the class, please make sure to install PuTTY before arriving.
