Oracle  implementation of SQL is very powerful. Learn it and use it smartly and stand out from the crowd.I created this course because although there are many courses about Oracle SQL available on different platforms and in different formats, most of them, if not all, focus too much on telling or demonstrating how to do things, but dont give you, as a student, the opportunity to test and practice what is being taught. Some of them tell you to practice or to do things along the instructor, but unfortunately, such approach doesnt really work. Seeing how things are done or just copying or repeating what you see on the screen is not going to help you learn SQL. You might feel that you are learning, but when the time comes for you to write a command on your own, you are most likely not going to feel very confident.In addition to that, most SQL courses, if not all, teach you the same kind of content you would find in a text book, but, what about those things that are not part of the official curriculum and are only learned through experience?The goal of this course is to help you learn Oracle SQL in a way that can make you stand out from the crowd. I really want you to learn and shine, and at the same time contribute with my grain of sand to bring more talented people to the IT industry.  I want to help you become a standout Oracle SQL developer.Content and Overview:This course was designed with beginners in mind, but if you have some previous SQL knowledge you will still learn a lot.  After setting the learning environment, it starts with the most basic concepts about databases in general and a very short introduction to Oracle and the SQL language.You will start learning about the simplest SQL statements and before you even notice it, you will be gradually progressing to more advanced concepts.It does not include demonstration lectures because the whole course is a coding demonstration. In 90% of the video lectures you will be watching my computer screen while I type, explain and run Oracle SQL code.It does not include labs at the end of each section because practically every lesson has a coding task for you to practice what you are learning.Please note that PL/SQL (Oracle’s procedural language) is not covered in this course.
