Are you tired of standing on the sidelines while everyone else has all the fun with database queries? Tired of hoping that Access is doing what you think it's doing when you point and click? Wouldn't you rather just tell your database manager what slice of the data you want? Join us for a hassle free entry to the world of SQL, (Structured Query Language), the lingua franca of relational databases. It's surprisingly simple and surprisingly powerful -- and it works in just about any database you can name.

This session will be most helpful if: You have some experience working with data in columns and rows.


Speaker Bios

  • Troy leads the data journalism team at The Associated Press, a band of coders spread across the U.S. who love to dive into data and build tools for journalism. He's always looking for new ways to collaborate with fellow journalists at other news orgs, so hit him up with ideas. He's based in New Orleans, and like most New Orleanians, probably talks about it too much.
