Learn Data Mining with SQL Server from Rafal who has been using it professionally for over a decade. 9 modules with 8 hours of in-depth learning, jam-packed with detailed demos. You will study: Cases, Models, Mining Algorithms, Model Training, Holdout, Testing Model Validity, Predictive Use and Model Scoring, Decision Trees, Clustering, Association Rules, Market Basket Analysis, and more.

Four videos, Introduction to Data Mining, What Are Decision Trees, Why Cluster and Segment Data, and What is Market Basket Analysis? are free. The remaining ones require a purchase, which will also give you access to download our educational data set, Happy Cars, so that you can practice the demos on your own.

This course focuses on the mature, fast, easy-to-use and highly visual Data Mining components of SQL Server, which installs as part of SQL Server Analysis Services Multidimensional and Data Mining. It is fully supported and availalable in SQL Server versions from 2008 R2 till 2017.

You can obtain SQL Server Developer Edition at no cost from the free Microsoft Visual Studio Dev Essentials programme. You will also need a current version of the free SQL Server Data Tools that includes the SQL Server Analysis Services project templates. It uses the Visual Studio Community (or paid) Edition and version 2017 works well (so do the older)—get it from the Dev Essentials programme, too. You can also use Excel (2010+, 2016 works well) to interface with this server-based technology—download the free Data Mining Add-ins for Office, but you need to have Excel already installed.
