How important is database management in the age of big data and analytics?
It is really important.
How many employers would be happy to hire employees who can use data for the purposes of business intelligence?
All of them.
How many people have these skills?
This is why now is the time to learn SQL and gain a competitive advantage in the job market. Remember, the average salary of a SQL developer is $92,000! That’s a lucrative career.
Well, when you can work with SQL, it means you don’t have to rely on others sending you data and executing queries for you. You can do that on your own. This allows you to be independent and dig deeper into the data to obtain the answers to questions that might improve the way your company does its business. For instance, Database management is the foundation for data analysis and intelligent decision making.
Worried that you have no previous experience?
Not an issue. We will start from the very basics and gradually teach you everything you need to know. Step by step. With no steps skipped.
Why take this course in particular? Isn’t it like the rest of the SQL courses out there?
We would like to think it isn’t. Our team worked hard to create a course that is:

Why study SQL?
Whether you are working in Business Intelligence (BI), data science, database administration, or back-end development, you will have to retrieve information from a server storing large amounts of data. To achieve this, you’ll need SQL.
Why did we choose MySQL and not some other relational database management system?
Because it is:
You will be much faster in learning and writing efficient queries if you go through a brief introduction to databases. It is the best thing to begin with, so in this video we will discover terms like:
- data table
- data entity
- and much more.
The Data Definition Language, DDL, is called a language, but you can think of it as a syntax, a set of statements that allow the user to define or modify data structures and objects, such as tables. Examples of the statements of the Data Definition Language are:
In this lesson, we will provide you with the tools that are essential for dealing with relational databases. They will help you maintain a database that can be characterized as:
In this lecture, we will focus on the differences between spreadsheets and databases. This exercise will be relevant not only for current Excel users. Those of you who do not use Excel regularly will still have the chance to understand the advantages and the disadvantages of using databases or spreadsheets.
In SQL, the conditions defined by the WHERE clause are applied before re-organizing the output into groups, while the conditions set by the HAVING clause are implemented after that moment. In this video, we will elaborate on this key distinction between the two clauses.
