In this course, you'll get an in-depth look at the SQL SELECT statement and its main clauses. The course focuses on big data SQL engines Apache Hive and Apache Impala, but most of the information is applicable to SQL with traditional RDBMs as well; the instructor explicitly addresses differences for MySQL and PostgreSQL.

By the end of the course, you will be able to

  • explore and navigate databases and tables using different tools;
  • understand the basics of SELECT statements;
  • understand how and why to filter results;
  • explore grouping and aggregation to answer analytic questions;
  • work with sorting and limiting results; and
  • combine multiple tables in different ways.
