Workshop#3 James presenting his ‘intro to’ series:

An intro to SQL. This was run previously at our live event at Desklodge House and proved extremely popular.

He’ll be presenting some slides on SQL, relational databases and how to use them to store information. Then there will be at least one database server to play with, so please have a laptop available and you can try a few things.

We’ll look at how we create a database, query a database and, if we have time, structure it to optimise for different tasks.

Workshop #2 Kathryn Armistead running:

There will also be a Python beginners course at 7:30pm with Kathryn. It is following an online Python Course (https://www.udacity.com/course/introduction-to-python–ud1110), with fortnightly workshops to go over the course material with the opportunity to ask questions, share coursework etc. For the next workshop we will cover lesson 3: there is quite a lot of substance here and all things that you will use over and over again, so if you have time any extra practice will stand you in good stead.

8:30pm: Central chat and call out for any projects that people want to support etc. Also time to make suggestions on subjects moving forward .. we are currently putting them together so will show the list and dates moving forward.
