Databases Part I: Introduction to Data Management with Databases and SQL Tuesday, October 4th, 2016 – 6:30-8:30pm
Databases are invaluable tools for organization and are better than a spreadsheet for working with multiple data sets, asking questions, and adding structure to your data. SQL is a programming language for working with databases. This workshop will introduce you to the basics of SQL, and will include hands-on practice creating databases and tables, importing data, and querying the database. The topics covered in this workshop are applicable across different SQL implementations, including MySQL, SQLite, and PostgreSQL. No previous experience with SQL is necessary. This workshop is the first part of a two-part series—the second part will take place on Oct. 13th.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops.
This workshop will be hosted by GC Digital Fellows Ian Phillips and Tahir Butt.
