About this Event

Event Description:

Join Galvanize for an evening lecture on SQL and relational database management systems (RDBMS). In this lecture, you will learn what SQL and RDBMS are, who uses it, when it is used, and, most importantly, how it is used. We will then break down the basics of querying and joining. Next, we will introduce NoSQL RDBMS and contrast the differences in functionality between the two commonly used types of RDBMS.

The lecture will conclude with a brief live demonstration on how to make a table in SQL, query and join and two tables, and discuss SQL's built-in functions. All in all, this lecture will show you how and why SQL has become so incredibly ubiquitous to all manners of business since its creation in 1970.

About Your Instructor:

Andrew Means

I'm passionate about solving problems. I've leveraged this passion to explore innovative solutions to uncover new areas of opportunity that were previously unknown.

My background in software development, data engineering, and data science lets me solve these problems creatively and from different angles. From recognizing pain points and collecting data about the issue to creating a developer tool that when integrated would save thousands of engineering hours on manual processes.

I am on a mission to create beautiful experiences using a synthesis of data science, creative feature engineering, and scalable design.
