SQL and relational databases fundamentals

This training provides an overview of the structure of relational database systems (RDBMS), such as Oracle, Db2, SQL Server, MS Access, ... and how they can be interrogated with the SQL language. This course will help you explore this fascinating world, and will convince you of both the power and the simplicity of the relational data model and of SQL.

During the exercises the DML aspects of the language are treated (especially the SELECT statement). The emphasis lies on writing queries. This course precedes the more advanced courses SQL workshop, SQL advanced course, and other courses treating RDBMS like Oracle, SQL Server, Db2, and MySQL/MariaDB.
