Description



About Managing Data with SQL

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.

About This Program

Who this is for

  • “I’m curious about tech and code in general”
  • “I am a complete beginner when it comes to coding”
  • “I have some coding skills but I’m looking to try my hand at something new!”
  • “I have financial barriers that make it hard to pay for classes and training”
  • “I’m not sure if I belong in tech— I wish I saw more people like me leading this industry!”
This event is open to all adults 18+, designed in a way that seeks to explicitly welcome people with underrepresented genders—this includes cis women, trans women, trans men, non-binary people, and others who are marginalized because of their gender identity or expression. We believe that addressing the gender gap in tech is just one part of building digital equity. A more just and equitable future for technology in Canada means building programming that supports, empowers, and equips all learners who historically have been—and continue to be—underrepresented in tech, particularly Black, Indigenous and other Racialized learners, people in low-income communities and newcomer learners If this sounds like you, we can’t wait to have you learn with us.
