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.
This 2-Part Workshop is the beginner level interactive way to get started on data analysis and handling. You will dive head first into SQL, skill up with exercises, and by the end of the day you'll write queries with confidence and distill insights from real-world data.
This workshop is for beginners. No prior knowledge or experience required.
You will be using pgAdmin, which is available within any browser - However, Google Chrome is preferred and recommended.
You will need access to a laptop or computer with a working webcam and microphone as well as a strong internet connection.
This class will occur completely online using Zoom.
