Data Science Demo

About our Instructor:

RichHeadshot2021Rich moved from particle physics to data science when he left academia, and is excited to be joining his interests in data and programming with his love of teaching. In his spare time, he’s a fan of science, speculative fiction, board games, and hiking.

We’re back again with one final data demo for the year to teach you some fundamental skills you can utilize on your journey as a data scientist (or data engineer). Join us on Tuesday, November 15th to pick up a new skill with TDI instructor Rich Ott.

Often, the data we need is in a relational database that we can access with SQL. While it’s possible to use a separate utility to connect to the database and save the data to a file, we’ll want to connect directly with our Python program.

In this demo, we’ll learn how to:
  • Write a simple SQL query
  • Connect to a database with Python database connectors
  • Automate database interactions

You won’t want to miss this last data demo of 2022!
