Going to spend the next few days learning about standard SQL at www.mysqltutorial.org. For this I’m going to use my raspberry pi 3 box that runs Raspbian Jessie as the server as it already has LAMP installed on it. This is not to become an expert in SQL but to pick a good understanding of what composes a database and can be achieved with it. To do the examples provided I picked up a copy of decent Windows based client called HeidiSQL to issue remote SQL commands to me raspbian box.
Initially I did the “Essential SQL Training” course at Lynda.com but wanted to expand on what I had learned so I googled the above website and worked my way through it.
