You will even learn about the pros and cons of choosing an SQL database vs. NoSQL database (like MongoDB).

You will start from the very beginning by learning SQL and Database fundamentals, but we won't stop there. You will then learn advanced topics so that you can make good decisions and work with any data that your company has, no matter how complex!

You will be able to work with all of the most popular databases like: PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle SQL, Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB2, SQLite, MariaDB, Amazon Redshift, Presto, Apache Hive with Hadoop, and many many more!

You see, data is everywhere and it is the most valuable asset in the world. All the top companies need people that can work with data. That is where this course comes in.

The truth is though... there are many SQL courses and even free tutorials online.

Here's the top 5 reasons why this bootcamp is different (and better) from any other SQL/PostgreSQL/MySQL/Database tutorial online:

1️⃣You will learn to work with not just one, but many databases like MySQL, PostgreSQL, Microsoft Server, Redis, and more.

We take you from absolutely zero knowledge and no technical/programming experience, all the way to mastery. You will go beyond basic SQL commands and learn advanced techniques, database best practices, database design and how to optimize for performance, security, and scalability.

2️⃣ Learn SQL & Databases from the best. This course is taught by Mo and Andrei, two Senior Developers who have actually worked on massive projects for some of the top tech companies in the world.

Mo is a SQL & Database expert and works as a Solutions Architect. He has built software for the European Union, launched products for five Fortune 500 companies, and has consulted at Google.

Andrei has worked on enterprise-level applications for large tech firms in Silicon Valley as well as Toronto. 300,000+ students from around the world have now taken his courses and many are now working at places like Google, Amazon and Tesla. You could too.

By having both Andrei and Mo teach, you get to see different perspectives and learn from two engineers as if you are working on projects at a company together with them.

3️⃣ You will learn by doing and actually have fun along the way.

Most tutorials are boring or out of date. The course is very different. You will start the course by getting hired at Keiko Corp and tasked with investigating their recent Database breach.

You will be working on real-world assignments and exercises, analyzing databases and hidden information and learning the skills you need so that you can help Keiko Corp solve their data breach mystery!

4️⃣ You will go beyond the basics. This course is not about making you just code along without understanding the principles so that when you are done with the course you don’t know what to do other than watch another tutorial... No!

This course will push you and challenge you to go from an absolute beginner in SQL and Databases to someone that is in the top 10% of SQL and Database experts.

5️⃣ You won't be learning alone. You'll be learning alongside hundreds of other students from around the world in our private online community 👋.

Many of our students tell us the projects they built while following along with our courses were what got them interviews and because they built the projects themselves, they could confidently explain and walk through their work during the interview. You know what that means? Job offer!

Can I download the videos?

Definitely. You can download any and all lessons for personal use. We do everything we can to make learning easy, fun, and accessible whether that’s on your commute, on a flight, or you just have limited access to good wifi.
