Learn the basic concepts and functions that you will need to make queries with the most popular data manipulating programming language, SQL.
This course is about SQL commands in the main. You will learn the basics of queries. This is a fundamental part of databases so it is definitly worth learning.
Learning the fundamentals of SQL is a good choice and puts a powerful tool at your fingertips. SQL is easy to learn as well as it has excellent documentations.
The most important fact about SQL that it is used in almost every speciality from software engineering to financial analysis, so understanding the concepts and basic language features can prove to be very marketable.
My name is Balazs Holczer. I am from Budapest, Hungary. I am qualified as a physicist and later on I decided to get a master degree in applied mathematics. At the moment I am working as a simulation engineer at a multinational company. I have been interested in algorithms and data structures and its implementations especially in Java since university. Later on I got acquainted with machine learning techniques, artificial intelligence, numerical methods and recipes such as solving differential equations, linear algebra, interpolation and extrapolation. These things may prove to be very very important in several fields: software engineering, research and development or investment banking. I have a special addiction to quantitative models such as the Black-Scholes model, or the Merton-model. Quantitative analysts use these algorithms and numerical techniques on daily basis so in my opinion these topics are definitely worth learning.
