# Preamble

This book is a basic introduction to data management with R and SQL.

It is curated for Boston College’s Data Management for Analytics and Applications (ISYS3350).

For the content of this book, you will need to have access to R, RStudio, and a relational database. For the ISYS3350 class, we will use the following infrastructure:

• RStudio Cloud (see instructions on Canvas and in Section 1.1)
• MariaDB (a relational database server that we will access using RStudio, no setup required)

The current version of the book only includes the first two chapters. More chapters will be released shortly!

Enjoy the workbook!
