Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Jon Flanders and welcome to my course, Introduction to SQL. I'm a developer with over 20 years of experience using relational databases and despite the fact that topics like big data and NoSQL databases get all the press these days, the vast majority of applications that use data which by the way, are the vast majority of applications, are backed by a good old-fashioned relational database system that is programmed using Structured Query Language also known as SQL. This course will provide you with the basics that you need to know to get started using SQL. No prior SQL experience is required. Some of the major topics that we will cover include querying data using the select statement, shaping your results using the where clause, creating and modifying data in your tables as well as creating and modifying those tables themselves. By the end of this course, you'll know the basics of how to create and use a relational database. Before beginning the course, you really only need to be familiar with the basic concepts of computer programming. I hope you'll join me here at Pluralsight to learn SQL with the Introduction to SQL course.
