Resource persons for the workshop was Mr. Sanjive Saxena.

The session began with a warm welcome of Mr. Sanjive Saxena.

Sir started off with some key pointers related to the topic such as-

·       SQL isStructured Query Language.

·       Adatabase is also known as dataset and is used for sorting of data.

·       Economics-Optimum utilisation of scarce resources

·       Economic indicators - Micro and Macro

·      Economic factors- Inflation, Interestrate, RBI etc.

When we analyse any data set, we need to sort, filter, and organize data.

Sir began by comparing Ms Excel with SQL by explaining that former is used for small dataset whereas latter is used for larger dataset.

In SQL, he began by teaching about creation of tables on the basis of raw information, entering the data, retrieving it by running commands, updating the data. And at last, dropping the rows/columns or deleting the entire dataset.

He also gave us a dataset of a company on which students had to demonstrate their understanding of the topic.

It was a very informative session which prepared the students for upcoming placement season.
