About the Course
Standard Query Language (SQL) is at the heart of all relational databases, including IBM's DB2, Oracle, Microsoft's SQL Server, and open source database MySQL.
SQL perennially tops the Computer Weekly/SSL Survey of Appointments Data and Trends as the IT skill most sought-after by employers. But although in theory it has been standardised for 20 years, implementations vary widely between relational database management systems (RDBMS), to the point where an application developed for one supplier's database - and the skills needed to develop it - may not transfer easily to another.
