Hello my name is Kris. I’m here because I am passionate about helping non-techie people to overcome their fear of learning SQL.

I know what it is like to not know where to start or whether the time spent learning is worth the effort. That is why I am here to help you to:
- Get started in an easy to follow step-by-step manner.
- Use your time wisely so you focus on what is important to learn to get the most value from your time.
- Answer your questions. Really! Just post a comment and I’ll respond. I’m here to help.

It wasn’t long ago that I was helping a colleague with some reporting. She didn’t know where to start and soon got overwhelmed and lost as she didn’t know SQL.

I felt really bad, as she was under pressure to get some summary information to her boss, the built-in reports were falling short, and to make them better would require her to know SQL. At that time that seemed impossible! It in dawned on me, it doesn’t have to be that way.

Then I discovered a way for anyone with the desire to easily learn SQL. I worked with my co-worker, started to teach her what I learned and soon she was able to write reports and answer her boss’ questions without getting stressed or ploughing hours into manipulating data in Excel.

It hasn’t always been easy. Sometimes the information seems abstract or too conceptual. In this case I’ve found out that a visual explanation is best. I really like to use diagrams or videos to explain hard-to-grasp ideas.

Having video, pictures, and text really help to reinforce the point and enable learning.

And now I want to help you get the same results.

Software Developer
United States United States
I've been programming and working with computers professionally for over 10 years now.

It all started as a hobby a long time ago when a friend introduced me to QBasic.

From there I've programmed in a lot of languages like C, C++, C#, Java, JavaScript and now a little bit of Go. I don't really have a favorite, but if I had to pick I like C# right now.

I also have a long background of doing systems and network engineering and know about things like email and phone systems, Active Directory and setting up VPNs.
