What you'll learn in this sql class:

SQL is a powerful language, and tool, for data analysis and data handling. In this bootcamp, you’ll dive deep into SQL syntax and database structures, while applying your new SQL skills to address business problems. This bootcamp will take absolute beginners through the basics of SQL to an ability to write queries with confidence and begin to unleash the full analytical powers of SQL and relational databases.

*Please note: this is a class for total beginners. Those who use(d) SQL regularly should use this course only as a refresher.

Takeaways

  • Understand SQL vocabulary such as tables, schema, functions and JOINS.
  • Understand the differences between different data management systems for SQL databases.
  • Create basic SQL queries by applying Boolean logic, sorting functions, and commenting.
  • Apply SQL aggregate functions [MIN, MAX, SUM, AVG, COUNT].
  • Use CAST to change a column’s type for a query.
  • Use advanced SQL commands [OR, GROUP BY, HAVING] and conditional operators [ =,!=,>,<, IN, NOT IN, and BETWEEN] to filter data.
  • Apply string, date, and math functions to manipulate how data is presented.
  • Apply UNION to tables and columns for merging data.
  • Use JOINS to create relationships between tables to obtain data.
  • JOIN and UNION with Aliasing
  • Complex JOINs with multiple tables
  • NULL values and related SQL functions
  • CASE (IF/THEN)
  • SUBSELECT

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 SQL implementation (MySQL, Postgres, SQL Server; Access is strongly discouraged). Instructions for installing MySQL will be distributed prior to class.

  • You will need access to a laptop or computer with a working webcam and microphone as well as a strong internet connection.
  • This course will occur completely online using Zoom and Slack.
  • Course set up information will be emailed to all students signed up around 24 hours before (and again an hour before) your course launches.

Due to the current health concerns, all GA short-form events, workshops & bootcamps will temporarily be held online - including this one.

Registered students will be notified 24 hours in advance of this program with information on how to log in to the Zoom Meeting Room and other tools you’ll need for the session. Registration for this class will close 2 hours prior to the session start in order to allow all students ample opportunity to have the technology enabled.


Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

School Notes:
For students enrolling in 12 week part time and immersive classes, it is not recommended that you book more than one class simultaneously.
