Part of Social Data Science Week, a collaboration between the Cathie Marsh Institute and methods@manchester. These courses have been designed for postgraduate researchers, giving you the tools to make use of free and open-source software, and techniques from the cutting-edge new discipline of social data science.
This ‘Introduction to SQL’ workshop is for any researcher who has a larger amount of data they want to pre-process (store, clean, reduce, summarise), before further analysis. No prior computational experience is required. This hands-on workshop provides an introduction to SQL using MySQL and the MySQL Workbench environment, both freely available. As well as illustrating how SQL and Relational databases can be used directly, we will also illustrate how to access the data from a programming environment such as Python or R or an application such as Excel.
