Description

Have you heard that database skills are essential for developers to be skilled in and understand?

Are you wanting to understand SQL and databases in general, but don't know where to start?

Maybe you have a pressing need to learn about Database Design and/or Data Analysis but have not found a good place to learn.

Or perhaps you are a developer who wants to improve your career options by having skills in SQL and MySQL, one of the worlds most popular databases.

Whatever the reason you have arrived here, this course will...

Help you understand and apply SQL with MySQL, including Database Design and Data Analysis.

Having database skills is absolutely vital for developers to avoid getting left behind and to maximise job and consulting opportunities.

Key concepts you will learn and work with in this course.

SQL (Structured Query Language - very much an in-demand technology).
MySQL (one of the worlds most popular and widely used databases).
Database Design
Data Analysis

The database design section (normalization and relationships) isn't covered in the majority of SQL courses on Udemy.  You will struggle to find another MySQL course that has a section on this.   This section alone, will give you a huge edge over other applicants for jobs.

Through the course you will go through creating an example database for a cinema online booking system using concepts taught in the database design section.

Creating, Modifying and Deleting Tables in a Database (DDL)
Inserting, Updating and Deleting Data from Tables (DML)
Select Queries
Joins
Aggregate Functions
Subqueries
Database Design
Creating Databases.

In addition there are installation videos covering MySQL on Windows, Mac or Linux.

Not only does the course teach you SQL, but there are multiple exercises for you to try with video solutions to further help you understand the material.

Also note that while MySQL is the database of choice in this course, the SQL skills you acquire will work largely with any database.

Why enrolling in this course is the best decision you can make.

Become skilled as a database developer generally needs you to learn SQL, a database, and then database design.  Often this will require multiple courses.  However you learn all those topics, and data analysis in this one course.

Jon Avis, the instructor, has 4 years experience working as an IT Systems Engineer, and works with SQL and Databases everyday.  Part of his role as a Systems Engineer is to teach complex, technical subjects to colleagues which makes him the ideal instructor for this course.

Essentially, you are learning from someone who has all the professional training, skills, and experience needed to  teach you how to become proficient with SQL, MySQL and Database design as quickly as possible.

If you are ready to get that first paid programming job, or to move up to a more senior programming position, then this course is for you!

After completing this course, you will have the necessary skills to be able to use SQL confidently, have a solid understanding of MySQL and be skilled in database design.

The sooner you sign up for this course, the sooner you will have the skills and knowledge you need to increase your job or consulting opportunities.  

SQL and MySQL skills are in high demand, as is Database Design, and you will understand and be able to use both after going through this course.

Your new job or consulting opportunity awaits!
