SQL Programming and Coding The truth is: SQL stands for Structured Query Language. Many people scoff dubiously when it is announced that SQL is, indeed, a programming language.
When people think of programming languages, all that comes to their mind are C++, Python, Java etc, . People disregard SQL as a programming language because of its interface structure and limited functionality. However, they fail to understand that while C++, Python are third level programming languages, and hence more developed, it doesn't change the fact that SQL falls under the umbrella of programming languages.
Yes, SQL is a programming language and is used for a wide range of activities such as quering, retrieving and extracting data from relational databases.
In addition to this, SQL also aids Microsoft in the definition and creation of structures based on relational databases such as tables and views. The demand for this old, simple language is increasing rapidly because of its compatible nature.
A person working on SQL can shift from one language from another, like Microsoft SQL, FoxPro and MY SQL.
If you think SQL is a dying language, then reconsider. Here are a few reasons why it is not:
- Knowledge of SQL creates opportunities for diverse career options - The corporate world is using SQL to keep track of their database, meaning having knowledge of SQL is a helpful trait when it comes to finding jobs - Helps you understand the origins of programming languages and overall sense of computer programming.
