Hands-On Data Science: 1 Analyzing Employee Data with SQL

Instructor: Ben Sullins

If you’re interested in working in the field of data or looking to advance in the field, you need a foundational knowledge of several key areas of data science. Not only that, you need to be able to demonstrate that knowledge. In this four-part, hands-on series, Ben Sullins shows how to build four distinct data science projects using SQL, Tableau, Python, and Spark. In this first installment, Ben uses SQL to analyze employee data, which is notoriously difficult to analyze given its structure. He breaks down the specific structure of employee data, and the best way to track this kind of information, then covers how you can start answering specific questions utilizing SQL. Finally, he gives advice on how to present your data, considering both your audience and the visuals you use, in order to convey your knowledge of the subject.
