SQL (Why ‘Little Bobby Tables’ is funny)

SQL (Structure Query Language) has been the preffered interface to relational database since the 70s.

You may be thinking: Ok grandpa!  Let the 70s have their SQL ... we're living in the NO-SQL era.

Not so fast! An understanding of SQL is needed.  It'll allow you to understand that legacy (and that not-so-'legacy') DB code and set you up for success with the many variations that the NoSQL DBs use (Cassandra - CQL, Kafka - KSQL, Hadoop - SQL-on-Haddop, Amazon - Just SQL).

We'll be taking a brief dive into SQL (from a programmer's perspective) to see what it can do for you, how to get it done and ending with some best practices - maybe some examples.
