Get ready to make SQL easy!

Updated for the latest version of SQL, the new edition of this perennial bestseller shows programmers and web developers how to use SQL to build relational databases and get valuable information from them. Covering everything you need to know to make working with SQL easier than ever, topics include how to use SQL to structure a DBMS and implement a database design; secure a database; and retrieve information from a database; and much more.

SQL is the international standard database language used to create, access, manipulate, maintain, and store information in relational database management systems (DBMS) such as Access, Oracle, SQL Server, and MySQL. SQL adds powerful data manipulation and retrieval capabilities to conventional languages--and this book shows you how to harness the core element of relational databases with ease.
* Server platform that gives you choices of development languages, data types, on-premises or cloud, and operating systems
* Find great examples on the use of temporal data
* Jump right in--without previous knowledge of database programming or SQL

As database-driven websites continue to grow in popularity--and complexity--SQL For Dummies is the easy-to-understand, go-to resource you need to use it seamlessly.
