What Is SQL And SQL Server?

SQL Server is a relational database management system or RDBMS for short. In very simple terms RDBMS is a tool which allows clients to store and retrieve data effectively and efficiently while providing with security, reliability and other useful mechanisms. Of course you could store the same information in a Notepad or an Excel Workbook but overtime it would get very messy, slow and unreliable.

SQL is a standard computer language that lets users communicate with data stored in a relational database management system. Besides SQL Server there are other RDBMSes and each RDBMS has its own flavor of SQL language. The core of SQL is shared among all flavors but each one has slightly different formats and commands. 

In our case we are going to be learning about SQL Server and the SQL language associated with SQL Server is called T-SQL. Once you learn T-SQL you can very easily pick up rest of the flavors.

Why Learn SQL And SQL Server?

The cornerstone of every business is data. If there is no data, there is no business - customer data, payment and order data, asset data and lots more. You might think that companies care about the fancy UIs, but that is secondary, because if there is no data - it doesn't matter how pretty and slick the user interface or user experience are made to be.

SQL Server is a very mature and seasoned RDBMS technology which has been around for more than 20 years. It is trusted by many large corporations and is grandfathered in their systems so it is not going away anytime soon. If you know SQL and SQL Server that means you are able to support the most precious asset for any company - their data. 

If they are using a different RDBMS and flavor of SQL you will be able to pick it up in less than a week since they are all so similar.

How Much Do SQL Developers Make?

SQL Developers make anywhere from $79,079 to $100,672+ depending on the seniority and level of experience (source: https://www.salary.com/research/salary/posting/senior-sql-developer-salary). It also depends on how well you perform on the interview which is a big deciding factor on how much room you'll have for negotiating higher.
