The Interdisciplinary Research Collaboratory is hosting a Carpentry Workshop on Relational Databases and SQL on Friday, January 31.

The workshop will run from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm. A light breakfast will be served.

Relational databases are powerful tools for search and analysis, and can handle large, complex data sets. This workshop will show how to use a relational database and the SQL language to explore a dataset from an early 20th century polar expedition.

The target audience is learners who have little to no prior scientific computing experience, and ​they put a priority on creating a friendly environment to empower learners and enable data-driven discovery. Even those with some experience will benefit, as the goal is to teach not only how to do analyses, but how to manage the process to make it as automated and reproducible as possible.

UCSB is a member of the Carpentries organization. Carpentry workshops are organized around teaching skills that are immediately useful for researchers, using lessons and datasets that allow learners to quickly apply new skills to their own work. ​

This is a free workshop, but registration is required. Register here today.
