Learning Path: SQL for Business Users

This learning path offers "just enough” SQL knowledge to wrangle data and do sophisticated analysis. You’ll get a solid understanding of basic database design principles and normalization. You’ll learn how to pipeline data to other analysis tools. You’ll be able to prototype a database that suits your business needs and form accurate queries and database updates in several SQL environments--all without getting bogged down in the deeply technical aspects of SQL that you will never use.
