This is an BEGINNER SQL course for people who find other courses to be boring or hard to understand. My format is very energetic and I simplify things so that anybody can understand it. I feel your pain with trying to learn new things, and I design my courses to make it the best possible experience possible.

If you are new to SQL, this beginner class is just for you. I have years working for companies like investment banks and FinTech vendors, so I know what software they have and what you need to know. This course is not just for financial jobs though. You can use this for any industry.

This course covers:

  1. Introduction to SQL
  2. SQL Components
  3. Getting your data. How to use SQL to pull data from database.
  4. Table Armageddon: How to join multiple tables
  5. Table Genesis: Where tables are born
  6. Things look GREAT from here! Let's talk about views!
  7. You are GOD...or just an administrator! Let's talk about privileges
  8. Only TRUE nerds pass here! Time to get advanced!

Don't take MY word for it, take a look at what some of the 540,000 people who have enjoyed my SQL videos have said:

Carlyle also has been published in industry journals and one of his videos were used for a global conference in Asia. The video was chosen because of how entertaining and informative it was, in a format that almost anybody could comprehend. It's all about his formula for "fast, fun and easy" learning that was inspired through frustration with the existing materials that Carlyle had to learn from. The thought process was, "Why does this have to be so hard and why can't it be fun?". The word is, "Infotainment" and the name is Carlyle Frank!
