In this video we will learn What is SQL? and a brief Introduction to SQL. The full form of SQL is “Structured Query Language”. web applications, desktop applications and also mobile applications developed in PHP, ASP, Perl, C, JAVA, .NET etc. use databases to store application information and SQL is the language to communicate with those databases.
SQL is used by all major database systems like MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQL Server, DB2, Oracle etc. SQL was initially developed at IBM by Donald Chamberlin and Raymond Boyce. It was initially called “Structured English Query Language” (SEQUEL) and pronounced as “sequel”. SQL is ANSI standard (American National Standards Institute) standard.
