What is SQL?

SQL is a domain-specific language (DSL) used in programming. SQL is designed to manage data in relational database management systems (RDBMS) or, in relational data stream management systems (RDSMS), for stream processing.

SQL created the ability to access multiple database records with a single command and without specifying an index. This is extremely useful for processing structured data (data models).

What do I need to know about SQL?

SQL was developed from the relational algebra work first undertaken by Edgar F. Codd of IBM. This basis in theoretical mathematics and computer science resulted in the creation of the relational model, the basis of a relational database.

SQL builds out a number of informal sub-languages to manage these relational functions: data query languages (DQL), a data definition language (DDL), a data control language (DCL), and a data manipulation language (DML). These four sub-languages manage the key functions of SQL: data query, manipulation, definition, and access control.
