Learn the secrets of SQL to land that job or get that promotion.


Master SQL at a Deeper Level

There are so many SQL courses to choose from, but how many really teach you the nitty gritty of how SQL works under-the-hood? Why is this important? 

If you understand how SQL is processed, you can: 

  • better answer difficult interview questions
  • increase your productivity and get that promotion
  • not spend hours or days troubleshooting your queries, only to copy and paste an untested solution online

Learn how to write SQL properly by "thinking like a relational database":

  • Learn ISO/IEC/ANSI SQL Standard
  • Learn logical ordering of how SQL is processed
  • Illustrations solidify mental models that help you master complex queries
  • Learn Group By, Subqueries, Filter Clauses, & Inner/Outer Joins, etc.
  • Understand the correct way to use joins
  • Fully comprehend how group by works
  • Learn how nulls are handled across each concept
  • No software downloading required - probably the only course you can use with your iPad or work computer.

While most courses focus on a database specific SQL, this course is focused on the ISO/IEC SQL standard. The benefit of this is that you can apply what you've learned in this course to almost any database you need to use or if you switch jobs. I use PostgreSQL because it's open source and most closely follows the standard.
