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.

  • Troy leads a distributed team of data analysts and developers working in newsrooms across The Associated Press to tell stories using data. His current obsession is data-driven newsroom collaborations. Ask him about SunshineHub or AP's data distros. Troy is based in New Orleans and, like most New Orleanians, probably talks about it too much.
