Skill Pill: Database Manipulation
Skill Pill: Database Manipulation will go over the basics of dealing with databases.
Databases are widely used in many areas: businesses, on the web and, of course, in science, notably in bio-informatics. In this Skill Pill, we will go over the structure of the most common databases (relational databases), how to communicate with them using SQL and more. There is no prior knowledge required as we will cover the basics.
This Skill Pill is suitable for anyone.
The teachers will be Saiful Haque (IT Manager), Christian Butcher (technician) and Jeremie Gillet (Belgian clown).
