Introduction to SQL, Crash Course

This workshop is a gentle, fast paced introduction to SQL. Our objective is to build a strong foundation and intuition, with an emphasis on retrieving and transforming data without making mistakes or suffering immensely.  SQL skills are in very high demand, as a core skill for data scientists. Learning SQL will also help you think logically about the structure of data sets.

The workshop is suitable for beginners, with no prior programming experience. However, for those with a thirst for adrenaline, parts of it will prove challenging, even for experienced non-SQL programmers.
