Part I. SQL Analytics

  • November 26, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • Alpine

Hi Everyone,

As part of our ongoing effort to drive business analysis I thought it could be really fun and useful to start a series of analysis core skills. First on the list is SQL.

We'll cover a range of use cases using SQL from real companies with real databases. We'll invite a local expert to give a talk on the basics.  Also, we'll cover how to apply SQL to not only Databases but also other applications.

Please feel free to post comments on how we can make this better or other suggestions.

More details to come soon.

    Great intro to SQL and Alpine, wish we had more time to delve into Alpine's product. Looking forward to future Alpine talks, learning about their product and where it's headed.

    Very good meetup! I tried signing up with Alpine but got an email that they've run out of space. I hope there will be more space as I am very interested to try it out.

    Good meetup. Basic stuffs for SQL and an introduction of a product by Alpine.

    November 26, 2013

  • Dimitri P.

    Good presentations. My opinion is that it should have been less focused on SQL and more focused on Alpine equivalent of SQL

    I so wanted to attend, but ended up too late in San Jose... looking forward to future events

    November 26, 2013

    • Joel S H.

      No problem Ruth, I think we'll make the slides available for folks who missed the event.

    Any suggestions for parking near this location?

    November 25, 2013

    • Joel S H.

      Lots of street parking or there is a parking lot.

      November 26, 2013

    • Joel S H.

      If not on Bryant, try Florida Street behind our building

    Please clarify is this basic or more advanced SQL? What other applications than databases will be covered? And who is the speaker?

    I'm trying to figure out if it's worth the drive.

    November 26, 2013

    • Stephen

      @Joel: ok I decided to skip it since I already know SQL. I'll wait for the recording or slides.

      November 26, 2013

    • Joel S H.

      OK, Koopa yes, Stephen, you're still missing out on a fab time!

  • Tom -.

    What's the end time and is there a set agenda for the event? Thank you.

    November 26, 2013

    • Joel S H.

      Hi Jake, yeah, end time we are shooting for is 8pm. Agenda: What is SQL, What are common functions in SQL, Analytics Example in SQL, and then some hands on with SQL with AWS and Alpine.

    Hi Joel, unfortunately, I would not be able to make it to this one in SF. I look forward to the recording though.

    I'll be able to make it to the next one in San Mateo.

    Thanks Joel!

    Anyone want to carpool from southbay(/peninsula)? I'm coming from Mtn View.

    Looks like this should be fun! :)

    You are not in San Mateo anymore? I am not sure if I can make it to SF in time. I'll see.

    November 24, 2013

    • Joel S H.

      Not this time, but we will plan to have our next event in San Mateo.

  • Sandra P.

    Can't make this one. Very disappointed. It's just before Thanksgiving and I have several people to pick up at the airport that Tue night. If you change the data I'd make the long drive for this one.

    • Sandra P.

      You're my hero. Thanks, Joel.

    • Harsh

      Hi Joel. Looking forward to the December meetup in San Mateo. Thanks.

      November 16, 2013

  • Sandra P.

    I would attend several of these. Great idea. I'm in the south bay so location might affect how often I'd be able to make these.

    October 14, 2013

    • Joel S H.

      Hi Sandra, we'll have one here in SF, but let me know if you have some location in mind in the South bay and we can come to you!

      November 12, 2013

    • Sandra P.

      Thanks, Joel. Some good south bay meetup venues I've been to lately are LinkedIn and Citrix. I'll keep a lookout.

    Parking is so bad, I'm out for this. With driving at an hour or two one way. Just too much time gone

      There's a big multi-level garage, which I believe is free or if not then metered and cheap, on the corner of 16th and Bryant, where there's a Safeway. Doesn't solve the drive time issue for you though, I realize.

      November 4, 2013

    • Joel S H.

      Richard if you need a place to park, let me know!

      November 12, 2013

  • Eddie H.

    4 months and counting without a date / location. I guess this is not happening?

    October 26, 2013

    • Joel S H.

      Eddie. It is happening. Be there.

      November 12, 2013

  • Joel S H.

    OK, we are on like Voltron! Will and I are going to do a deep dive into SQL and then apply it to some super cool data science applications. Plus! You'll get to check out our new digs here in SOMA. Re: Parking, at 6pm there is plenty of street parking and we have a lot that I can probably get passes if you email me.

    P.S. As a special note, we are having a launch party on November 21st, 2013. Ping me if you want to come as we have a few invites remaining and I can add you to the list.

    Getting a location is awesome. That means you're close to setting a date?

    November 4, 2013

  • Brent M.

    I'm in, based on actual date.

    Sounds very interesting to me. Would love to be there.

    I will be there if at all possible, given no date or location, yet. Thanks for putting this together.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
