About this Event

Learning to use and manipulate data from databases is an incredibly valuable skill that you can apply back on the job across many different sectors and types of jobs, and which will add to your value as an employee. Completing this workshop may also spark your interest in pursuing more training for a job focused on data, such as Data Analyst.

Why learn SQL?

SQL stands for Structured Query Language - it is the most universal and commonly-used language to communicate with databases. SQL is a powerful language that allows us to extract useful insights from large quantities of information (or “big data”).

Companies such as Uber, Netflix, and Amazon use SQL to analyze data, but they aren’t alone! SQL is widely applicable - it’s not exclusive to coding and tech. All industries use databases in some form, which makes SQL relevant to a wide variety of jobs and industries - from administrative roles, customer service, financial services, government, marketing, retail, restaurants, sales and more.

If you’ve heard about databases, but aren’t sure how to use them, this workshop is designed for you! We’ll cover query basics, and practice these transferable skills within the SQLite database through some fun exercises (similar to MySQL). We’ll analyze real data from the Canadian government, which helped shape Canada’s newly updated Food Guide!
