Key eBook Features:
About the 2nd Edition
This book was originally released in August of 2019 with the aim of helping readers build upon their football stats knowledge and open up a new world of statistical based thinking. This was done in two parts, firstly through the building of a professional stats database and the learning of the programming skills needed to update it automatically. The second part was through the learning of SQL, a powerful language used to query database systems quickly and efficiently.
In this 2nd edition I have built upon where the first edition left off, this involves new chapters delving into areas such as automatically scraping the web for up to date results and building upon existing skills to get even more from technologies including PowerShell and SQL Server.
It would be fair to say these are all, in their own right, large and complex areas of work, but with this text I take readers through plenty of working examples whilst providing plenty of detailed descriptions and screenshots of the concepts being covered along the way.
Topics Covered in the eBook
Building a Professional Stats Database using SQL Server
