SQL for beginners

The next Ipswich Makerspace meeting is rapidly approaching.  It is being held on Thursday 23rd April between 19:00 and 22:00 at Holy Trinity Church.

The course will be practical and aimed at beginners, so bring along your laptop and follow along. Tim will have an SQL server running so all that is needed will be a working web browser.

The three parts of the course will be:

1. Basic Concepts
2. Advanced Data Retrieval
3. Design & Performance

The aims of the three parts will be:

Part 1: To create a database table, insert data into it, update that data, and retrieve selected records from the data.

Part 2: To aggregate data, and to use more advanced selections.

Part 3: To use simple joins and unions, subselects, and describe the use of indexes and views, and the concept
of Third Normal Form.

This looks like a great course so why not come along and joint us.
