Plenty of data these days come in large or relational tables that require a good database manager, beyond what Excel and even Access can offer. MySQL is a free, powerful, and popular open-source tool, and with it you can transform and analyze almost any dataset. In this class we will introduce you to MySQL and how it works. Please note that we cannot help you install it here, but there'll be plenty of help for that at the installation party Sunday at 9 a.m.

This session will be most helpful if: You have some experience working with data in columns and rows, and are familiar with SQL.
