Content is divided into easily digestible chunks that can be read and practiced in very short intervals of time, making this the ideal book for a busy professional to learn from. Even just a 15-20 minute block of free time can be put to good use.
Author Ben Brumm begins by helping you understand what a database is, and getting you set up with a sandbox in which to practice the SQL that you are learning. From there, easily digestible chapters cover, point-by-point, the different aspects of writing queries to get data out of a database. You'll also learn about creating tables and getting data into the database. Crucial topics such as working with nulls and writing analytic queries are given the attention they deserve, helping you to avoid pitfalls when writing queries for production use.
