Learn how to use SQL to manage your database. This simple, straightforward course provides detailed instructions for creating tables, defining relationships, manipulating strings, and more.
- [Bill] Hi, I'm Bill Weinman, and welcome to SQL Essential Training. The goal of this course is to provide you with the basic knowledge that you need to use SQL effectively in any database environment. We'll start with the basics, how databases are organized, and, in particular, how relational databases work. I'll explain how to use the select statement and how to create, update, and delete data from your tables. I'll show you the details of SQL syntax, how to effectively format your code, and how the basic structure of SQL works.
I'll cover creating and deleting tables, data types, aggregate queries, joins, transactions, sub-selects, views, and other features of this powerful database language. Finally, I'll show you a full working CRUD application. CRUD is an acronym for the four basic functions of any database application: create, read, update, and delete. Understanding SQL will serve you well in coding and managing relational databases and your database applications.
