Introduction to SQL

If data is the new oil, SQL is what allows you to manage this precious resource: it is the standard language for relational database management systems. If you work (or want to work) with data, learning SQL will definitely boost your career. This course takes you from novice to comfortably leveraging SQL within four weeks, through both theory and lots of hands-on practice. We live in a data-driven world: people search through data to find insights to inform strategy, marketing, operations, and a plethora of other categories. To this day, an overwhelming majority of businesses store their data in relational databases, which makes familiarity with SQL an essential skill for everyone.
