SQL Boot Camp

June 26 @ 10:00 am June 28 @ 5:00 pm

The SQL Boot Camp is a three-day intensive boot camp of seminars and hands-on programming sessions to provide an overview on the design of relational databases and querying data from existing data sources using the SQL programming language. This three-day intensive boot camp covers the fundamentals of relational databases, including database design, and writing queries using the SQL language. The boot camp will integrate seminar lectures with extensive hands-on sessions using the commonly available database software program MySQL. The first half of the boot camp will cover building databases with proper design to maintain data integrity, while the second half will focus on retrieval and manipulation using SQL (Structured Query Language). Investigators from any institution and any career stage are welcome to attend. This workshop will particularly benefit those who will be actively involved in research data management. Additional Information: There are two requirements to attend this training: 1. Basic experience working with data (e.g., data cleaning or analysis) is beneficial, but not required. 2. Each participant must have a laptop with Zoom installed. To get the most out of breakout groups, we also recommend a working microphone and webcam. Participants may also wish to share their screen with instructors during one-on-one questions.
