Plenty of data these days comes 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 data set. In this class, we will introduce you to MySQL and how it works. Please note that we cannot help you install it here.

This session is good for: People with some experience working with data in columns and rows and who are familiar with SQL.
