Data Pub: Download software for SQL

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Microsoft Access is the way to start. Of course, it’s only available on Windows.
If not Access, the Windows users should either install SQL Server Express 2014 found here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42299.

They should select ExpressAdv 32BIT\SQLEXPRADV_x86_ENU.exe for the correct 32-bit installer or ExpressAdv 64BIT\SQLEXPRADV_x64_ENU.exe for the correct 64-bit installer. If they’re not sure which to use, then have them install the 32-bit by default. The software is free but not open source.
Or they can go open source (and free) by installing PostgreSQL from here http://www.postgresql.org/download/.  From that page, there are both 32-bit and 64-bit installers. Once PostgreSQL is installed, they should next install Navicat on top of that found here: http://www.navicat.com/download/navicat-for-postgresql. They’ll have to use the 14-day trial version unless they want to purchase it outright.

For Mac users, we’re recommending PostgreSQL for Mac followed by Navicat on top of that. PostreSQL is found here http://www.enterprisedb.com/products-services-training/pgdownload#osx  and Navicat here: http://www.navicat.com/download/navicat-for-postgresql.
