Using SQL and Databases - Expression of Interest - LTU Bundoora - Fri Sep 13 2019
ABOUT THE SESSION:

A relational database is an extremely efficient, fast and widespread means of storing structured data, and Structured Query Language (SQL) is the standard means for reading from and writing to databases. Databases use multiple tables, linked by well-defined relationships, to store large amounts of data without needless repetition while maintaining the integrity of your data.

Moving from spreadsheets and text documents to a structured relational database can be a steep learning curve, but one that will reward you many times over in speed, efficiency and power.

Developed using the researcher-focused training modules from the highly regarded Software Carpentry Foundation (software-carpentry.org).

Please note that places are limited.
