The Shiley School of Engineering is hosting SQL Saturday, a training event for data professionals and those wishing to learn about SQL Server, Azure SQL Database, and other data advances, on Saturday, November 3, in Franz Hall. Registration forms and specific times and offerings can be found at this link.
According to organizer and computer science professor Radana Dvorak (pictures), there will be a number of 101 hands-on sessions specifically for students and those who are relatively new to data systems, meant to help bring more young people into the data-oriented professions. This event and the workshop sessions are free to all faculty and students.
The event will need student volunteers to help speakers and organizers. It’s a great way for students to meet experts and potential employers. To volunteer, students should register at this link. Volunteers work in two hour shifts, the rest of the time they can attend hands-on workshops or listen to the presentations. All volunteers receive a free t-shirt.
Anyone interested should register as soon as possible, since a free lunch is provided, and organizers need to have numbers for catering (and to order volunteer t-shirts).
