Thinkful Webinar | Intro to Data Analytics: SQL Fundamentals
SQL (Structured Query Language) is the most ubiquitous language for data scientists and data analysts. Companies store their data in a database, and SQL is a common database query language that helps you to build your database, retrieve the data, and work with that data in a structured manner.
In this course, you’ll learn to extract and analyze data stored in databases. You’ll first learn to extract data and work with simple queries to pull specific data you need for your analysis. Join us for a fun interactive workshop that will get you on your way to using SQL.
