Second offering of RDM 201 course for IRRI staff

The second offering of the Research Data Management 201: Advanced SQL was held on 27-29 November 2012 in IRRI.

In RDM 201, some advanced functions and queries that can be useful when building more complex applications were introduced. The course was also a refresher on basic database management skills, taught by having participants look at and define the structure of a relational database system, compared to the hierarchal model of handling data.

Participants, composed of 7 IRRI research staff, were also taught to identify denormalized data and correct data redundancy up to the third normal form.

The RDM 201 training team is composed of Menchu Bernardo, Icoy Mercado, and Dec Arreza of IRRI's Risk Management and Quality Assurance.
