Data is one of the most important parts of building a web app, and is usually stored in a database. You’ll need a special programming language to interact with the database: that’s SQL.

In this course, Andrew Burgess will cover all the essentials you need to get started with SQL. If you don't know much about databases, don't worry! Andrew will cover some basic database concepts along the way.

Hi! I'm Andrew Burgess, and I'm a connoisseur of all things programming. I'm from near Toronto, Canada, and I've been fooling around with computers for nearly my whole life, both hardware and software. Right now, I'm finishing up a computer science degree. For almost a decade now, I've been playing around with over a dozen programming languages on several different platforms, from JavaScript to Java, from Ruby to Befunge. My favourite has always been JavaScript. I've always enjoyed writing, so when I discovered Tuts+ in 2009, I was excited to start writing tutorials. Since then, I've been writing tutorials and producing screencasts for Tuts+. Right now, I'm a course instructor and I produce mostly JavaScript-related courses. Maybe you've seen Building a Web App from Scratch with Angular.js or Node.js from Scratch; that's me! I've also written a few ebooks, like Getting Good with Git, Getting Good with JavaScript, and, more recently, Backbone.js Blueprints.
