Steph will follow up on her MySQL bootcamp (http://www.meetup.com/Hacks-Hackers-Miami/events/110331902/) by showing us more about how MySQL is used in data analysis and application development.
The course will be split into two sessions with a break in the middle. You do not have to attend both sessions, but please let us know in the comments if you're only coming to one!
Session One (1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.) will explore how to use MySQL to query datasets to answer questions that we, as new data analysts, have about that data.
Session Two (3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.) will explore a how a basic multi-table setup in MySQL would relate to a web application, such as a website or a mobile app.
This is a hands-on workshop and requires attendees to bring their own laptop. No particular software is required for this course; everything is provided. MySQL does not need to be installed on your laptop; you will be given credentials to log into a server where the database is already set up.
RSVP now and brush up on the intro bootcamp slides! (https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B0HzQC14VDVtQkYxLWFHQTl3NzA/edit)
