Cool Sample Data

Free samples are easily my favorite thing about grocery stores.

Free sample datasets, though? Those can be awfully dry.

You're guaranteed to need sample data at some point. Perhaps you need to interview a potential analyst but can't use your company's data. Maybe you're tired of your company's data. It's not the same as when you first met it. And you're dying to rekindle that spark that made you love SQL in the first place.

We've scoured the web for some non-boring datasets so you don't have to:

Most of these datasets will be downloaded as a CSV. If you don't know how to import a CSV into a database, we have guides for that too: PostgreSQL, MySQL, Redshift.

Stay querying, my friends.
