Summary

On this course from the Raspberry Pi Foundation you’ll learn what databases are and why we use them, exploring how to use SQL to search and manipulate the data. Along the way, you’ll learn about primary keys and table relationships, as well as how to create joins to search multiple tables. In the final week, you’ll finish by grouping and looking at exporting data from the database. Learning about databases and SQL is a key component of GCSE Computer Science, so it’s important for educators, students, and parents alike to feel confident about the subject.
