Why learn SQL?
SQL is the most universal and common used database language.It powers the most commonly used database engines like PostgreSQL, SQL Server, SQLite, and MySQL. Simply put,If you want to access databases then yes, you need to know SQL.
It is not really difficult to learn SQL. SQL is not a programming language, it’s a query language. The primary objective where SQL was created was to give the possibility to common people get interested data from database. It is also an English like language so anyone who can use English at a basic level can write SQL query easily.
SQL is one of the most sought-after skills by hiring employers.

SQL is easy but no one can determine the learning time it takes. It totally depends on you. The method we adopted to help you learn SQL quickly starts from the basics and takes you to advanced level within hours. You can follow the same, but remember you can learn nothing without practicing it. Practice is the only way to learn SQL quickly.
What are the steps I should follow to learn SQL?
Start learning from the basics of SQL. The first 10 sections of the course cover the basics.
Once done with the basics, try your hands on advanced SQL. Next 10 sections cover Advanced topics
Practice your learning on the exercise provided in every section.
What's the difference between SQL and PostgreSQL?
SQL is a language. Specifically, the "Structured Query Language"
PostgreSQL is one of several database systems, or RDMS (Relational Database Management System). PostgresSQL is one of several RDMS's, others of which are Oracle, Informix, MySQL, and MSQL.
All of these RDMSs use SQL as their language. Each of them have minor variations in the "dialect" of SQL that they use, but it's all still SQL.
What is BigQuery used for?
BigQuery is a web service from Google that is used for handling or analyzing big data. It is part of the Google Cloud Platform. As a NoOps (no operations) data analytics service, BigQuery offers users the ability to manage data using fast SQL-like queries for real-time analysis.
Is BigQuery free?
The first 10GB of storage per month is free and the first 1TB of query per month is free. Post these limits, BigQuery is chargeable.
Which is better, PostgreSQL or MySQL?
Both are excellent products with unique strengths, and the choice is often a matter of personal preference.
PostgreSQL offers overall features for traditional database applications, while MySQL focuses on faster performance for Web-based applications.
Open source development will bring more features to subsequent releases of both databases.
Who uses these databases?
Here are a few examples of companies that use PostgreSQL: Apple, BioPharm, Etsy, IMDB, Macworld, Debian, Fujitsu, Red Hat, Sun Microsystem, Cisco, Skype.
Google BigQuery is used by companies such as Spotify, The New York Times, Stack Etc.

Congratulations & About your certificate
With very high hope, I started this course but unfortunately, this is really a very 2 basic level. You should not mention this for a working IT professional who is having even 1 yr of experience. This could be useful for undergraduate college students. I will not recommend this course to my working IT friends who were asking me about this.
It's a great learning experience so far, you guys both the database like PgAdmin and Cloud database which is Big Query. I really loved SQL this journey. Thanks!
This is kind of harsh considering the content is really nice but I just can't get in terms with the way of teaching. I think it needs to be more candid and engaging which it isn't. The tonality of one of the instructors(don't want to name who) puts off the learning experience. I just hoped that it wasn't this dull. Again, the course and the slides are designed so well, but the narration needs a lot of work. Apologies for being critical.
It was a great journey and from my experience on this course, i am now ready to face a real world challenge. it was a classroom feeling all along.
The presenters speech is too slow; the heavy accent wasn't helping either. I had to set the "playback rate" to 1.5x. The course started ok and then it turned into a "basic SQL commands" course, rather than focus on Google BigQuery.
Was Awesome learning SQL with you, everything i needed was expalained. Thank you very much. I joined your Facebook Group and also the Youtube Chanel.
I was interested in learning from BigQuery and found this course very valuable to learn new techniques relating SQL.
Was great but I faced an error with the course which was not solved. reported the error too but didnt get any replies
there should be something if a student does not have card details to register on cloud platform.Disappointing.
Best thing about Start-Tech courses are that they are very simple, easy to understand, putt less stress and require less effort to practice and implement the topics covered. Thanks
