      • SQL is the lingua franca of all database systems and a necessity for anyone who needs to analyze data as part of their job. This workshop, delivered by Professor Panos Ipeirotis, is designed for absolute beginners and teaches students how to write SQL queries that retrieve data from a database. The workshop is heavily exercise based, with a focus on developing the necessary skills for writing SQL queries.

We cover the various structures used in Python to represent data, and we examine the concepts of conditionals, loops, and functions. As our first complete application, we will write a program for detecting similar company names within a dataset.
      • The Python Part 2 tutorial builds upon the knowledge from Part 1; we will examine how to use the Python Pandas library, a modern-day replacement for Excel, and we will also examine how to use Web APIs for a variety of tasks. We will work on an example of analyzing inspection data for NYC restaurants, analyze data about locations and causes of road accidents in NYC, and build an application that extracts entities that are mentioned in the news.
