Have you heard that database skills are essential for developers to be skilled in and understand?
Are you wanting to understand SQL and databases in general, but don't know where to start?
Maybe you have a pressing need to learn about Database Design and/or Data Analysis but have not found a good place to learn.
Or perhaps you are a developer who wants to improve your career options by having skills in SQL and MySQL, one of the worlds most popular databases.
Whatever the reason you have arrived here, this course will...
Help you understand and apply SQL with MySQL, including Database Design and Data Analysis.
Having database skills is absolutely vital for developers to avoid getting left behind and to maximise job and consulting opportunities.
Key concepts you will learn and work with in this course.
SQL (Structured Query Language - very much an in-demand technology).
MySQL (one of the worlds most popular and widely used databases).
The database design section (normalization and relationships) isn't covered in the majority of SQL courses on Udemy. You will struggle to find another MySQL course that has a section on this. This section alone, will give you a huge edge over other applicants for jobs.
Through the course you will go through creating an example database for a cinema online booking system using concepts taught in the database design section.
Creating, Modifying and Deleting Tables in a Database (DDL)
Inserting, Updating and Deleting Data from Tables (DML)
In addition there are installation videos covering MySQL on Windows, Mac or Linux.
Not only does the course teach you SQL, but there are multiple exercises for you to try with video solutions to further help you understand the material.
Also note that while MySQL is the database of choice in this course, the SQL skills you acquire will work largely with any database.

The Learn Programming Academy was created by Tim Buchalka, a software developer with 40 years experience, who is also an instructor on Udemy, with over 1.89M+ students in his courses on Java, Python, Android, C# and the Spring framework.
The Academy’s goal in the next three years, is to teach five million people to learn how to program.
Apart from Tim’s own courses, which are all available here, we are working with the very best teachers, creating courses to teach the essential skills required by developers, at all levels.
One other important philosophy is that our courses are taught by real professionals; software developers with real and substantial experience in the industry, who are also great teachers. All our instructors are experienced, software developers!
Our team is busy creating new courses right now.
Whether you are a beginner, looking to learn how to program for the very first time, or to brush up on your existing skills, or to learn new languages and frameworks, the Academy has you covered.
I am a programmer with over 30 years' experience gained in a range of industries, the last 16 with IBM.
The first program I sold controlled stock movement in a warehouse, and ran on a CP/M computer - both the program and operating system lived in the 64 kb (yes, kilobytes) that was all CP/M systems had in those days.
I have gained experience in a wide range of industries including Utilities, Retail, Insurance and the Motor Manufacturing industry. My clients and employers have included Northumbrian Water, Arcadia, Royal Sun Alliance, Nissan and Jaguar Landrover. I also worked for Sunderland University for 3 years preparing and delivering training courses in computing.
Times have changed, the challenges are very different to what they were, but programming remains fun!
When not at my computer, I am often riding my motorbike through the wonderful countryside of the UK and Europe.
