Do you need a database for your data? Or could you store the data in standalone files? Which database paradigm should you consider? What are the consequences of these choices on your work routine? How to navigate all of this with minimal or no programming experience?

These and more are the questions we will address in the course. We aim to provide a gentle introduction to databases and database paradigms, with examples that help explain the differences between the most common database packages and guide researchers to design suitable solutions for their data problems.


This workshop is open to all studying and working at Cambridge. We particularly welcome early career researchers and doctoral students, priority will be given to AHASS and GLAM. Places are limited and available to book via UTBS.
