Course 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
Aggregate Functions

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.

The topics covered are a good starting point. However I wish the instructor were a little more enthusiastic and not so monotone. Except that, it was a pretty good experience.

Clear and easy to understand. I posted some questions during the course but I did not get any answer. Those questions are important to me, surely I will monitor the course and hope/looking forward to get those answers. Please don't forget about my troubles.Thanks again.

Easy to understand and the approach towards the topics are very well organized with better clarity.=> SELECT All_courses FROM udemy;

easily understandable, expained in good way.Understood the concept, practice makes perfect.Now its our turn to observe things while coding and get the output as per requirement

Explanations were clear and thorough, the course was interesting and very well organised. I would recommend more exercises in Subqueries and on the course as a whole for a better understanding of the matter.

Instructor neglecting some important aspects that I am asking. He answers some of the basic stuff which other student posted. but when it comes to advance stuff that will make a student better. He doesn't respond.Disappointed with this kind of instructor. First time I commented negatively of all my life buying courses in Udemy. This course not going to get you a job. It will only teach you basic which you can learn for free. Very disappointed I bought this course

This course is excellent specially for beginners, all topics explained comprehensively. Thanks a lot

One of the best courses on DBMS...!!!

very detailed and informative. His lessons are easy to follow along with and make sense!

This class is excellent. It is very thorough, and I like that there are exercises throughout the course in order to have the opportunity to apply what I'm learning. I also appreciated that they ran through the installation process for multiple operating systems versus installing on one and telling the students to do their best if they have another machine. Lastly, I'm very thankful that the instructor still responds to new questions even as the course has been on Udemy for a couple years.

This course was easy to understand and a good introduction to SQL. Some videos do need to be updated though because they don't follow the flow and appear to be from a prior version the the course

Good course but have not received any responses to my questions.
