Professional Development Workshop:

With any task, how the database is configured can make or break a project. Ensuring that you have the best data types to get the most out of the database, the application is one of the most important things to get right. We'll go over the many different data types and why you would use one over another. 

Next, we'll review the terms "data analysis" and "data cleansing" and what it truly takes to get the data into a usable state. 

Finally, we'll explore some of the different ways to move data into or out of the database thru the means of ETL and what that truly means to a developer and for the business itself.
