This course provides a straightforward, concise resource for non-developers to learn enough about relational databases and SQL syntax to write simple queries.
- [Instructor] Understanding how to directly access information stored in a database can be a very powerful tool. And you may think that you need a special diploma or hours and hours of in-depth training to have any hope of learning how to do that. But that's simply isn't the case. Hi, my name is Julianne Thouin and I established a career writing database queries without obtaining a degree in computer science by learning to write in an English like programming language called SQL. In this course, I'll walk you through the basics of writing SQL queries and give you all the tools you'll need to start retrieving information from a relational database. Whether you're looking to learn your first programming language in hopes of someday working as a professional database engineer or you already work alongside developers and want to be able to get the answers you need by querying the database on your own. This is a great place to start. Welcome to SQL for non-programmers.
