Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Using SQL databases, part of Web Development Foundations: Web Technologies.
…Before we move on from talking about data, I…want to talk in a little bit more detail about…SQL databases. SQL, or structured query language, often referred to…as SQL as well, is the standard language for managing…and retrieving information from databases. By taking a deeper…look at it, you're gonna get a better overall feel…for how data management works. Web applications typically use SQL…or some form of it to update, create, delete or…retrieve information from a relational database. Relational…databases are the most common form of data…storages by web applications. They store related data…in one or more tables. If you've never…dealt with a database before, just picture a…spreadsheet. Data is stored in rows and columns…with the columns describing the data and the…rows storing the data itself. Using simple SQL…queries or SQL queries, if you will, web…applications can parse and use this data within the…application. SQL uses simple logical syntax that's very…easy for most people to learn. Common statements like…
