SQL Queries

Episode description

Structured Query Language, more commonly known as SQL, can help you insert and retrieve data from databases. In this episode, Lars Klint teaches you how to use SQL queries to interact with databases using entirely free resources: the AdventureWorks sample database from Microsoft, a SQL Server and the SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS). You’ll learn how to retrieve data with the SELECT statement, filter with WHERE, combine sets with AND and OR, as well as order your data.
