Why You should Attend SQLSaturday – An Interview with John Byrnes

A few weeks ago, I attended my first SQLSaturday event. I brought along my camera and was lucky enough to record a couple interviews. This is one of those interviews.

I sat down with John Byrnes and we discussed:

  • Where has SQL taken his career?
  • What does the SQLSaturday community mean to him?
  • Why should someone attend a SQLSaturday event?

Want to Learn SQL? Here is a Great Tutorial!

Mode Analytics, a recently launched site for collaborative data science in the cloud, has published an excellent tutorial for learning SQL.

The tutorial is named SQL School .

This is one of the best SQL tutorials I have seen. Plus, it has the huge added advantage of not requiring you to setup your own database first (the data is already available). Setting up your own database can be a bit overwhelming when you are first learning. So, if you are looking to learn SQL, now is a great time to start.
