Data Management Workshop

November 12, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

$15

Data exists in various forms and there are many types of database systems to store and work with these different flavors of data. Choosing the right type of database system depends on many factors. In this workshop, we will cover some of these factors and introduce popular SQL databases as well as NoSQL alternatives.

What is SQL?
SQL, or Structured Query Language, is the programming language used to interact with many relational database management systems (RDBMS). During this course, attendees will become comfortable with writing basic SQL commands to retrieve meaningful data from existing databases.

What are NoSQL Alternatives?
NoSQL, or Not Only SQL, is a broad term to describe database systems that model data in any other form than traditional relational databases. By the end of this class, attendees will have gained hands-on experience querying data from popular NoSQL databases, such as MongoDB and Neo4j.

Hardware/Software Requirements: Attendees should bring their laptop and charger (OS doesn’t matter).
