Take your learning on the go during a practical data science demo with 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
