SQL workshop

It is said that relational database systems are easy to use. This is true when compared with non-relational systems. Nevertheless a profound training in SQL, the 'de facto standard language for RDBMS', is still necessary when you want to do more than simple queries on one or two tables.

This course gives a thorough training, both theoretical and (mainly) practical, in the use of SQL, and primarily its data manipulation aspects, i.e., translating database questions into an SQL query.

After successful completion of the course, the students will be able to read complex SQL and especially also be able to formulate complex SQL statements in a readable and maintainable way.

This course is mainly practical in nature; it builds on the course SQL and relational databases fundamentals and precedes the more advanced SQL advanced course.
