About the Author

He spent more than 25 years with the Gannett company, including the Poughkeepsie Journal, USA TODAY, and Gannett Digital.

Who Should Read This Book

Practical SQL is for people who encounter data in their everyday lives and want to learn how to analyze and transform it. To this end, the book discusses real-world data and scenarios, such as U.S. Census demographics, crime statistics, and data about taxi rides in New York City. Along with information about databases and code, you’ll also learn tips on how to analyze and acquire data as well as other valuable insights the author has accumulated throughout his career. He doesn't focus on setting up servers or other tasks typically handled by a database administrator, but the SQL and PostgreSQL fundamentals you learn in this book will serve you well if you intend to go that route. The book contains exercises for beginner SQL coders but will assume that you know your way around your computer, including how to install programs, navigate your hard drive, and download files from the internet.

Product description


One of the best-organized travelogues we've seen into the SQL realm.”
—Newstips Bulletin

"Slightly more fun and more engaging [than
Learning SQL from O'Reilly]."
—Python Programmer, YouTuber

Practical SQL will take you from an absolute databases beginner towards becoming a database and SQL master. This book is one of those books that you feel like reading a novel, not a technical book. It uses an easy to follow and understand the approach that makes it easy to read for people from all backgrounds.”
—Sara A. Metwalli, Towards Data Science

"I recommend reading
Practical SQL by Anthony DeBarros for a more in-depth look on how to implement regression analysis and other analytical tools using SQL."
—Michael Grogan, Towards Data Science
