We'll be reviewing a data project created by a Quora data scientist. Here is an excerpt from the website:
"This is an interactive book which aims to be the best place on the internet for learning SQL. It is free of charge, free of ads and doesn't require registration or downloads. It helps you learn by running queries against a real-world dataset to complete projects of consequence. It is not a mere reference page — it conveys a mental model for writing SQL. I expect little to no coding knowledge...As more of the world's data is stored in databases, I expect that this time will pay rich dividends!"
Chapter leader Julia David, a business analyst at software start up Autobooks, will help guide participants through the project and help participants complete challenge questions.
What we will work on:
- Simple joins
- Aggregate functions
This is the continuation of a previous meet up. You can attend even if you missed the last meet up! However, the topics we are covering are slightly more advanced. It is recommended that participants have basic knowledge of simple select statements, where clauses and basic aggregate functions.
You can gain that knowledge by completing the interactive, guided worksheets we completed in our last session:
