Types Of Sql

Recommended Posts

I bought two books to learn SQL.. one is "sams teach yourself SQL in 10minutes". The other is "learn SQL in three days". I've heard of MySQL but was not sure if these are the same. I have to have a website I imagine to learn this right? I'm trying to get books for HTML and i think its call PHP. Everything starts with HTML am I right. But basically want to know about SQL

Reading books is of course a great idea.

However, you should not mix the problems.

First of all, in order to have a website, you you need to have something you want to tell us.

Then, you should think how you want to express yourself.

A lot of website providers have simple tools allowing you to express what you want to say, with simple ways of inserting a text, a background and some pictures.

If you want to do something else, or if you want to master what you will show in static pages, you have to learn html.

If the pages are not static, if you want something to change dynamically, by means of an interactive program, you will have to learn a programming language, php is an acceptable choice.

If you want to insert data, you will need a way of storing, manipulating a querying data, you will need a database system. A Relational database management system (RDBMS) engine is a good choice. In order to query the database, an query language will be needed. SQL is probably the best choice today.

MySql is a very popular database environment, it's not the only one, maybe you should consider several choices before choosing your own system. Fortunately, the SQL syntax is rather universal and if you master one SQL system you will be able to easily switch to the next one, for instance Oracle or Postgre.

So, you see, quite a long way in front of you if you stick on the idea of doying everything all by yourself.

Fortunately, there are a lot of alternative ways of reaching your goals, using some ready-made envirenments like DreamWeaver or something else.
