SQL for Salesforce

READY TO GET HANDS ON WITH SQL?

“My objective is to add SQL familiarity and hands-on experience to your array of skills. This should serve as a spark to turn familiarity into proficiency and proficiency into expertise! There is tremendous value in having SQL proficiency in the Salesforce ecosystem. All technical skills require time, dedication, practice, and experimentation. I hope to provide a foundation for SQL based on concepts you already know and understand well as a Salesforce professional. I will also provide you with resources and experts that I have learned from, so you can continue your journey forward.”

Take A look Inside

This course will focus on Data Query Language, DQL for short. The aim of introducing SQL is to focus on query and analysis use cases for selecting data from your database. This is a great starting point and gives you coverage and common ground when collaborating with analytics and data teams. 

We will leverage Snowflake to import data, but will not get into SQL commands for creating and administering a database. A general understanding of Data Query Language will open the door for you to explore other areas like Data Definition, Data Manipulation, and administrative functions like Data Control, and Transaction Control. I will explain various commands at a high level to give you a good foundation.

The SQL concepts and code you will learn in this course are universal. It will translate to most databases including, but not limited to, Microsoft SQL server, MySQL, POSTRESQL, and others. I will also reference Salesforce SOQL from time to time.
