Text files are fine when you have thousands of observations, but what do you do when you have millions (or billions)? In this workshop, participants will learn about choices in database technology that support data at scale; the building blocks of schema design; how to write SQL queries to retrieve, delete, insert, and update data in a database; and how to connect their database to a R or Python script.
