In July, CECS once again hosted SQL Saturday – a day-long training event designed for server professionals to learn about innovations in the use of Structure Query Language. Widely used in managing database systems, SQL is an essential tool in both public and private sectors. CECS was pleased to join local and regional partners in both sponsoring and hosting the event. SQL Saturday was coordinated by CECS Computer Science alumnus Larry Ortega, a TVA professional who also serves as Co-Chapter Leader of the SQL Professionals of Chattanooga. Computer Science and Engineering Department Head Dr. Joseph Kizza and Director of Student Success Julie David joined in welcoming over 200 computer science professionals from across the south. The event is a part of CECS’s outreach to the extended community and commitment to professional development for computer scientists in our region. The workshops and social interactions of SQL Saturday provided an opportunity to showcase the College’s programs and facilities, while also reconnecting with CECS alumni and friends.
