About #llcCodeDay 2020
For many adults currently in or entering the workforce, COVID-19 has created some very unique challenges. We can help! Our goal is to empower learners – you – during these tough times by creating opportunities for you to upskill.
This year is our eighth annual National Ladies Learning Code Day and it will be completely virtual! No matter where you’re located, you’ll have the opportunity to learn SQL with us, live and online. True to all of our experiences, Managing Data with SQL workshop will be social, collaborative, hands-on and project-based. Being able to use SQL means you’ll confidently work with and manipulate data, giving you additional value at work. We’ll analyze real data from the Canadian government, which helped shape Canada’s newly updated Food Guide!
What is SQL?
SQL isn’t just for jobs that require technical skills – it can be useful in so many different roles. SQL is a language that communicates with databases like Microsoft Excel, Google Sheets and other sector-specific databases (e.g. healthcare, government, retail, etc.). By the end of the workshop, you’ll be able to quickly find and organize data you need and make data-driven decisions.
