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, a Staff Writer here on Tuts+. I've been hanging around the Tuts+ since early 2009; I discovered the site when I was looking for an introduction to jQuery. Since discovering the site, my web development skills have skyrocketed; I think that's the default experience! Now, I've been writing for Tuts+ regularly since late 2009. I've been working with the computers since I was pretty young, and with the web since 2006. I've dabbled with over a dozen programming languages, but I'm most comfortable in JavaScript and Ruby. Currently, I'm a university student, studying computer science.
