Introduction to SQL for Querying Databases

Introduction to SQL for Querying Databases In-Person / Online

This workshop provides an overview of the utility and base SQL commands for working with data in a relational database. We’ll focus on querying data to get to know a database and answer questions, and combining data from separate tables.


After this workshop, learners should be able to:

  • Identify the benefits of working with SQL;
  • Perform common SQL commands including sorting, filtering, calculating values, aggregating, combining data, and basic data cleaning (i.e., replace missing values);
  • Combine commands to construct a query to answer a specific question; and
  • Access additional resources for using SQL in other software like R.


Learners should attend the "Introduction to databases and data storage technologies" workshop. No prior programming experience is necessary. Bring your laptop to the workshop with SQLite (https://sqlitestudio.pl/) installed and running.
