Software Carpentry week 3

Hi DaSHers,
This Friday is week three of the Software Carpentry series at DaSH. Last week we had another strong turnout of close to 60 people learning about using the shell and basic bash scripting. This week we get stuck into SQL. SQL (Structured Query Language) is a special-purpose programming language designed for managing data held in a relational database management system (RDBMS), or for stream processing in a relational data stream management system.

Mike and Tom will be in the Flex Room from 8:30 onwards if you have any specific questions or issues that you want to explore further, or need some help ensuring you are ready for the second session. The formal session will kick off at 9:00.

If you missed any of the pervious weeks then you can read through the online lecture notes from the Software Carpentry website (, and make sure you download the software needed for this course as per instructions at These instructions either let you install a complete virtual machine, or individual packages as needed.

Hope to see you there.
