Building off of previous SQL courses, this course will begin to introduce the student to more complex database concepts. Students will learn to think about data as sets and subsets and practice achieving desired query results via such operations as inner and outer joins, unions and except. They will also be introduced to the concepts of Set Theory and Database Normalization to aid in understanding good query practices.
In this course you'll get lots of practice writing SQL queries in a realistic environment!
Learn how to create and modify your own database tables as we work through a real-life example! We'll talk about how to choose the right structure for a database and then see how we can implement that structure.

If you’ve never worked with databases before, you’ll learn that a database is a collection of data that’s organized so it can be accessed, retrieved, referenced, or recalled. Databases come in many different hardware forms and structures. A few examples include servers, computers, cloud infrastructures, and more. You’re likely familiar with companies that sell databases to companies, like Oracle and Amazon. With these databases, companies are able to store mass amounts of data for a price.

Day 18 of #100daysofcode. SO ready for the JS unit in the #treehouse FEWD Techdegree. I feel like JS, HTML, and CSS represent the three virtues in the Triforce. Now that I'm getting into JS... I'm feeling balanced ⚖️⚔️!— JoJo (@jowebdev2020) April 28, 2020
The @treehouse #techdegree gets you a much more in-depth experience, access to the Slack channel, peer-review, & building a (graded) portfolio of projects, PERFECT if you're a first-timer looking to get momentum to (as in my and @shilvia_88's case) make a career change. 🙂🏢👩💻— Ryan Whitney (@spaceman_ryan) February 14, 2020
