Learn A Language Series: Intro to SQL

June 19, 2018 · 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

What is SQL? It’s information stored in a database’s widely-back software application that also manipulates & retrieves data. SQL (Structured Query Language) is designed to interact with the relational database systems efficiently. In this workshop, we will explore the fundamentals of the database systems, querying, and aggregation of the data. Many businesses use large, relational databases and a basic understanding of it is a valuable skill…not only for data scientists but for others as well.
