Silent Disco: Introduction to Databases and SQL
Managing data has become increasingly important in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Databases provide a powerful tool to allow for the storage, structuring and analysis of large amounts of data. In this workshop we will use SQLite, a flexible open-source database, to learn some of the basic concepts of database design and usage.
In this workshop, you will learn about:
Basic database design
Importing and exporting data
Analysing your data
The workshop will take place via Microsoft Teams in a ‘Silent Disco’ format. Participants will work on the tutorial at their own pace. The facilitator will be available via Teams Chat to reply to any questions that arise during the workshop, and to help with installation, troubleshooting or other issues.
This is a beginner-level event. No previous knowledge of the topic is required/expected and the trainer will cover the basics of the method.
To attend this course, you will have to join the associated Microsoft Teams group. The link to join the group will be sent to attendees prior to the course start date, so please make sure to do so in advance.
