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 and begin to unleash the full analytical powers of SQL and relational databases.

*Please note: this is a class for total beginners. Those who use(d) SQL regularly should use this course only as a refresher.

Takeaways

  • Understand SQL vocabulary such as tables, schema, functions and JOINS.
  • 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.
  • JOIN and UNION with Aliasing
  • Complex JOINs with multiple tables
  • NULL values and related SQL functions
  • CASE (IF/THEN)
  • SUBSELECT

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, so students should bring laptops with an installed SQL implementation (MySQL, Postgres, SQL Server; Access is strongly discouraged). Instructions for installing MySQL will be distributed prior to class.
