Because a database is only the storage medium, we need to use a different kind of tool in order to work with that stored data. Take this course to learn how to use structured query language (SQL) to manage data in a relational database management system (RDBMS). Perform create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) operations on data using SQL, to make raw data useful. Examine data definition language (DDL) commands that work with database and table objects. Use SQL to add constraints to data in tables, for example, to specify what kind of data gets stored in which column. And explore the repercussions of constraint violation. After completing this course, you will be able to illustrate how SQL can be used within a database to add and secure tables.
