Last night I attended my first session of my Data Cleansing course.
The syllabus looked daunting. However, once there, the instructor polled the class of about 30 students to see who had any SQL background. Two hands went up – mine and one other student. When he asked if anyone was a programmer – mine was the sole hand raised.
He then mentioned our first few weeks will be spent learning SQL basics by using MS ACCESS. I almost LOL’d. We have 4 weeks to complete the first homework assignment – which we will do in groups. Following ACCESS will be R Studio, then SAS.
Such a sense of relief and satisfaction washed over me. I’m pretty sure I’ll ace this one!
