Advanced SQL for Business and Finance
Tue, September 21 5:30 pm – Wed, September 22 9:00 pm
According to an MIT Technology Review article written by Antonio Regalado, the amount of digital data being created globally is doubling every two years. Yet only about 0.5% of that data is ever analyzed.
Specifically, having a keen understanding of SQL is important as a great deal of corporate data is stored in tabular format. Being able to efficiently work with very large tables to access key information can help professionals add unprecedented value to their organizations as they can better answer various strategic questions after accessing such data. Such information can help organizations develop and sustain competitive advantages. As a result, employers often rank SQL skills as one of the most important skills for today’s professionals.
In this hands-on class, participants will build on the SQL foundation established in Introduction to SQL and learn more advanced queries and commands as well as how to better structure queries so that they are more efficient and easier to debug.
Attendees can use either a Mac or Windows computer for this workshop.
