In conjunction with the Montana Code School, MonTEC has hosted a number of EPSCoR-sponsored workshops that have exposed UM students, faculty, and researchers to specific software development tools and practices. This knowledge can decrease the trial and error process of programming, help researchers discover more creative solutions, and produce work of higher quality, all of which effectively increase productivity in a research context.
In determining the best areas of focus for the participants in future workshops, brief feedback on both the needs and struggles you/grad students face with the coding process of research would be greatly appreciated! It shouldn't take any longer than 5 minutes.
Database Design, Management and Querying with SQL
This workshop explored the world of relational databases and the following concepts:
1) How do you design a database for different purposes?
2) How do you load data into the database?
3) How do you query the database using basic and advanced techniques?
4) How do you maintain a database platform and important areas of ongoing maintenance?
