What is blockchain? How do businesses use blockchain technology in their day-to-day operations?
Even better, how can you use blockchain technology in your business or career? Blockchain industry insider and practitioner David Fragale pulls back the curtain on the growing security tech that's still an enigma to tech and non-tech professionals alike.
Whether you work in tech, or you follow tech trends as a hobby, or you just want a better understanding about what blockchain is as an informed consumer, this event will cover the basic fundamentals of blockchain and observations on the market in blockchain use.

As the home of tech behemouth Amazon, Seattle has become a hub for innovation driven by data. At its core, Amazon uses SQL and relational databases to power the product recommendations you see every time you fill up your cart. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
Organizations in leading industries across Seattle are hungry for data analysts and people who can use SQL to retrieve, manipulate, and connect information stored in databases to pull off the same behind-the-scenes "magic" that drives insight and success for Amazon.
In our one-day workshop, you'll learn the fundamentals of SQL, one of the most widely sought-after skillsets in the Seattle job market, and how to leverage the tool to advance your career. You will:
Use MySQL to answer business questions
Learn how relational databases––like the ones Amazon uses to recommend items similar to your purchases––are designed and implemented
Work hands-on with MySQL to query and access data
There are no prerequisites, but we recommend you come with a basic understanding of Excel, stats, and/or charts.
Please be sure to bring your laptop. SQL downloads will be sent to participants prior to the workshop.
