Businesses are drowning in dataForrester
but starving for insights
Most data is stored in databases, and they have to be accessed through interfaces. The most common one is SQL, a declarative language that lets us tell the database which data we want and how to present it. We cover the basics of the language itself and some of the Python tools related to it.
Students will assemble a SQL database of 4 years worth of NYC restaurant inspection data. They will write and execute queries against this database to understand the variations in scores and violations across the city and between different types of restaurants.
This module is currently part of our Data Science Fellowship.
