About This Class Series
SQL provides powerful but reasonably simple tools for data analysis and handling. This two-part series will take absolute beginners through the basics of SQL to an ability to write queries with confidence. We will use a combination of lecture and in-class exercises to ensure that students leave with a working grasp of SQL fundamentals.
Session 1: Saturday, 18 November 10 am – 5 pm CST
Session 2: Sunday, 19 November 10 am – 5 pm CST
Prereqs & 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 PostgresSQL implementation. Instructions for installing PostgresSQL will be distributed prior to class.
