Building on what you’ve learned in the first two sessions, we will introduce joins: a powerful feature of SQL that lets you combine the contents of multiple tables based on shared data. Combining information across multiple spreadsheets is tricky in Excel, so this is where SQL really starts to shine.
SQL was born to do data mashups, and this class will help you put them to work.

Suggested technical Experience: Anyone who attended SQLite II or who has familiarity with SELECT, aggregate functions and GROUP BY in SQL.
