FRIDAY, October 14, 2016 | Workshop 2 | 15:30 – 17:00

Intro to Data Science: SQL 101

They say Data Science is the sexiest career of the 21st Century, are you intrigued?
In this workshop you’ll learn how it all begins, with an introduction to data and the key principles of SQL – the language used to access the data you need amongst the enormous volumes stored. This workshop will be interactive, using real life examples.

To talk about #WomenInTech is important, because greater diversity allows grander ideas, more opportunities and a wider pool of talent, from which we can all benefit.
