This SQL starter course will provide you with strong foundational skills to explore the tables, columns, and rows stored in a database and write/code SQL queries to extract and start analyzing that data. Using practical, hands-on exercises, our expert instructor will guide you through understanding the basics of database architecture and will develop your skills in writing real SQL code.
You’ll learn how to write SELECT statements to choose the specific columns you want from tables, start filtering the results using WHERE, AND/OR, IN, and NOT. You’ll learn how to use wildcard filters as well as mathematical comparisons like equals, greater than, less than, etc. to retrieve only the data you want. Finally, you’ll combine data from multiple tables with inner and outer JOINs.
By the end of this introductory hands-on course, you’ll be able to write basic SQL queries for Microsoft SQL Server. You’ll learn how to use the free SQL Server Management Studio app to explore the database and execute your SQL queries. The concepts you’ll learn on SQL Server can be applied to other flavors of SQL (such as Microsoft Access, PostgreSQL, MySQL, etc.) with minor syntax differences.
