We just learned how to query data from a database using SQL. We also learned how to filter queries to make the information more specific and useful.

Let’s summarize:

  • SELECT is the clause we use every time we want to query information from a database.
  • AS renames a column or table.
  • DISTINCT return unique values.
  • WHERE is a popular command that lets you filter the results of the query based on conditions that you specify.
  • LIKE and BETWEEN are special operators.
  • AND and OR combines multiple conditions.
  • ORDER BY sorts the result.
  • LIMIT specifies the maximum number of rows that the query will return.
  • CASE creates different outputs.
