Learn SQL in just 30 Days

Hi 👋! My name is Chris Castiglione, and I'm going to be your instructor for this One Month course!

I’ve been teaching SQL courses in person for the past eight years to thousands of people worldwide, including developers, CEOs, and MBA students. After all that time one-on-one with my students, I’m excited to finally bring my SQL course online to the students here at One Month like you!

In One Month's Learn SQL you will: 

  1. Become fluent in the fundamentals of SQL
  2. Learn how to create a SQL database from scratch
  3. Read, write, query, and analyze data
  4. Learn how to use 20+ of the most popular SQL commands including SELECT, INSERT, JOIN, WHERE, ORDER BY, LIMIT, and more. 

In Learn SQL we’ll cover everything you need to be proficient enough to comfortably use SQL in your applications or in performing data analysis. And the good news is, there are hardly any prerequisites to get started—you don’t have to have previous coding skills, you just need a computer and I’ll help you get your first database up and running.

See you in class! 
Chris

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is a One Month Coding Bootcamp?

A. Our bootcamps are 100% online, so you can participate from anywhere in the world. You will be given access to course video lessons throughout the month, which is where you'll first learn the material.

Q. How much time will I need to commit?

A. Our bootcamps require around 2-4 hours per week (depending on how fast you go). That time will be spent watching video lessons and completing homework that is given to you throughout the course.

Q. How is One Month different from other learning platforms?

We've learned from our past students that you're 78% more likely to complete a bootcamp successfully if you're working with other people. Our online bootcamps offer a premium level of interactivity with your instructor as well as other students so you'll never feel alone on your learning journey.

Q. Are One Month bootcamps worth my time and money?

A. If you want to take an intensive 8-10 week in-person course that costs thousands of dollars, then One Month isn't for you. But, if you're looking for a fast-paced intro to a computer programming language that is taught in a fun, fast and effective way at a fraction of the price and on your own schedule, you're in the right place.
