About This Workshop

Imagine that you have a spreadsheet containing every data point about your customers — their preferences, their web browsing behavior, the products they’ve bought. What would you do with all that information? When you know SQL fundamentals, you can slice and dice that data any way you want, providing critical insights that drive business strategy.

SQL provides powerful-yet-simple tools for data analysis and handling. This SQL bootcamp will take absolute beginners through the basics to an ability to write queries with confidence. Get hands-on experience navigating a SQL server and distilling insights from real-world data. You’ll leave able to use this tool on your own data immediately.
