Get ready to go to the next level with the Structured Query Language (SQL) and become a power user. Whether you are being asked to solve complicated problems with SQL or you need to read and understand complex SQL that is already written, this course is for you. Come prepared to master the Structured Query Language (SQL) across multiple database platforms in this fast paced and hands-on course. We begin with a review of joins and move quickly to more complex operations involving set processing, advanced grouping, table expressions, recursion and more. Each topic is reinforced with hands-on workshops. Examples and workshops are provided for multiple platforms, such as Db2 for z/OS, Db2 for Linux, Unix & Windows, Oracle, SQL Server or PostgreSQL, with discussion of the relevant differences.
Before taking this course, students should take SQL Basics or have equivalent work experience.
