About this event

Join Galvanize for an evening lecture on SQL and relational database management systems (RDBMS). In this lecture, you will learn what SQL and RDBMS are, who uses it, when it is used, and, most importantly, how it is used. We will then break down the basics of querying and joining.

Next, we will introduce NoSQL RDBMS and contrast the differences in functionality between the two commonly used types of RDBMS.

The lecture will conclude with a brief live demonstration on how to make a table in SQL, query and join, and two tables, and discuss SQL’s built-in functions. All in all, this lecture will show you how and why SQL has become so incredibly ubiquitous to all manners of business since its creation in 1970.
