Learn what you need to know to follow along in this course. Find out why we use SQLite and how is it different from other database systems.
- [Instructor] The goal of this course is to provide you with the basic knowledge that you need to use standard SQL in your applications. Because most modern database systems were developed before SQL was standardized, each system tends to use variations of the language. Some of these variations deviate from the standard. This course uses SQLite for all the demonstrations. SQLite is likely different from your database system, and that's okay.
Every database system is different, and each has their own variations of SQL. SQLite follows the standard more closely then most other database systems. SQLite comes pre-installed on most platforms, including most web servers, mobile devices, and even most desktop operating systems. And the entire database is stored in a single cross platform file. Keep in mind that other database systems will be different. Most database systems predate the standard by many years.
They may need to support a lot of non-standard legacy code. The syntax used by your system may vary from the standard, and some standard features may be missing, and other non-standard features may be common practice. This course covers standard SQL, so that you're well prepared for whatever environment you'll be using. While it's important to understand that your database system will have a unique set of features and usages, this course aims to prepare you by providing a solid foundation in standard SQL.
