What you'll learn in this sql class:

Imagine that you have a spreadsheet containing every data point about your customers — their preferences, their web browsing behavior, the products they’ve bought. What would you do with all that information? When you know SQL, you can slice and dice that data any way you want, providing critical insights that drive business strategy.

SQL provides powerful but reasonably simple tools for data analysis and handling. This Bootcamp will take absolute beginners through the basics of SQL to an ability to write queries with confidence — and start using the tool immediately.

We strongly recommend that participants sign up at least 48 hours before the Bootcamp start time to ensure sufficient time for pre-work and set-up.


  • Understand SQL vocabulary such as tables, schema, functions and JOINS.
  • Understand the differences between different data management systems for SQL databases.
  • Create basic SQL queries by applying Boolean logic, sorting functions, and commenting.
  • Apply SQL aggregate functions [MIN, MAX, SUM, AVG, COUNT].
  • Use advanced SQL commands [OR, GROUP BY, HAVING] and conditional operators [ =,!=,>,<, IN, NOT IN, and BETWEEN] to filter data.


  • This Bootcamp is for beginners.
  • This course will occur completely online using Zoom and Slack
  • You will need access to a laptop or computer with a working webcam and microphone as well as a strong internet connection
  • Pre-work and course set up information will be emailed to all students signed up around 24 hours before (and again an hour before) your course launches
  • Students will be asked to register to Mode Analytics before your course begins (directions to do so will be emailed to all students)
  • Each individual course participant must have purchased a ticket

Max Cantor taught my group and I thought it was a great class. We installed the SQL GUI and were quickly on our way to running simple queries and learning to think about the layout and nuances on SQL. This was a pretty in-depth introduction and I'll be able to implement at work what I learned in the class, and therefore be able to verify database structure, data integrity, and overall quality of work of our offshore team.

I learned a ton with Max, who is a dynamic and super clear instructor. I've struggled to learn programming languages on my own, but he made the process seem easy, fun and interesting. I can't wait to continue learning about data science.

This was my first GA class. I had some familiarity but never really learned the basics of mySQL. I thought our instructor, Matt, explained databases well, walked through practical examples, and gave the class useful exercises. I feel much more comfortable in my understanding of databases in general and will take follow on classes at GA.

I started the class knowing very, very little about SQL. After eight hours I now feel comfortable writing queries! The instructor was humorous and engaging. Great class!

Instructor was supposed to send out notes after the class and the example questions/answers, he never did.
