Coding with Typo: Structured Query Language (SQL) Part 1: What Is SQL?
Welcome to the first coding tutorial on SQL here on Null Byte.
I am first off, very proud to present this series, because it is not only the first programming language I learned, but SQL has never seen Null Byte before, and I will now introduce this to you, and everybody else joining this community in the future.
I hope I will be good at explaining this series, as I hope I also do in my other series, because nobody has told me i'mgood or bad, so I hope i'm good and people can understand what I mean.
First you need to know what SQL is!
SQL = Structured Query Language & it is exactly what it says. It's a language that is structured in queries.
You can use it for managing databases only, and you'll need an software to code in it. There are also websites who provide you a way to practice your skills.
If you want a very on point description of this language, I have a video from YouTube you can freely watch here
If you are just a bit familiar with SQL, you'll know that there are 2 ways to pronounce this language. SQL & SEQUEL.
SEQUEL was the name this language was originally dubbed, but because of a company already having that name, it was forced to change its name, which then became > SQL.
You can still however pronounce it in both ways if you wish.
Once again, if you want a little more in depth explanation on this, you can do so here
I will teach you the basics of SQL, and show you the most popular commands such as:
and many more
When I am finished you'll be a master of SQL.
I am also going to teach you how to setup a SQL server, but that is far in the future, because you have a lot to learn first.
