What is SQL?
SQL (Structured Query Language) is the primary language responsible for manipulating data within a relational database management system. There are four basic operations that SQL can perform, these are sometimes referred to as CRUD operations - create, read, update, delete). SQL is a bit like other programming languages in that you have to learn the code to make use of it much like other popular languages you may of heard of such as Ruby, C, Python etc. Day to day, SQL is used to retrieve data from different tables in databases, and then combine it together to create reports. It has a pretty simple syntax, and, almost anyone can start using SQL to create reports within a few minutes.

A database, in simplest terms, is an organized collection of data. A database is comprised of many tables, and a table stores rows of data in a structured format defined by the table's columns.
