SQL is ubiquitous, but it's also complicated, difficult, and error prone. In this video, C.J. Date -- the world's best-known relational advocate -- shows you how to write SQL code that's logically correct, how to avoid various SQL traps and pitfalls, and, more generally, how to use SQL as if it were a true relational language. You'll also learn relational theory, how SQL departs from the theory, and how to avoid the problems that can cause.
