We’ll start this SQL fundamentals tutorial with a very fundamental question: what is SQL, anyway? SQL (often pronounced “sequel”) is an abbreviation for Structured Query Language. It’s a kind of programming language that’s designed specifically for use querying and updating databases.

This is useful because it’s not always practical or advisable to store data in other formats like spreadsheets or CSVs. Imagine, for example, a company with terabytes of data that’s being updated regularly by people in different departments across the company. Trying to manage this with spreadsheets would be a logistical and security nightmare! Databases allow for the secure storage of huge amounts of data, and SQL is the tool we use to access and make changes to that data without needing to store it all in a file on our local machine.
