MySQL for Beginners

Learn SQL From Scratch Using MySQL Databases, A Complete SQL Course For Beginners

Created By: John Purcell

About This Course

Big databases are everywhere these days. Facebook, Netflix, Uber, Airbnb use SQL-driven databases - to name just a few.

So, to be a successful developer or data scientist you need to know SQL inside-out.

But - SQL can seem complicated. Especially if you’re a beginner or more familiar with other programming languages. Don’t worry - there’s some good news…

SQL isn’t complicated - or at least it doesn’t need to be, so long as you learn it the right way.

Problem is - too many other courses out there jump around, skipping important concepts or simply teaching things badly.

That’s why this course goes further than most. You’ll get in-depth knowledge and skills that are built-up sequentially to make sure you don’t have any gaps.

After working as a software developer and contractor for over 14 years for a whole bunch of companies including CSC, Proquest, SPSS and AT&T in the UK and Netherlands, I decided to work full-time as a private software trainer. After spending four years in the beautiful city of Budapest, Hungary and a year in Berlin, I now live in my home town of Derby, UK.
