If you want to practice SQL queries, you need a local database and some exercises to get you started. This post describes how to make 40 employee database by just cutting and pasting into the terminal. I then share some exercises to get you started on playing with the database.

Create a database

The following example data is from SQLTutorial.com.

You can do these exercises for all of the common SQL varietes. If you wish to use PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle Database, or SQLite, there are instructions for pasting in the data at SQLTutorial.com. The instructions below are for MariaDB or MySQL.

If you are using MySQL, assuming you already have MySQL installed, create an empty db by running these queries

CREATE TABLE regions (
	region_id INT (11) AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
	region_name VARCHAR (25) DEFAULT NULL
);

CREATE TABLE countries (
	country_id CHAR (2) PRIMARY KEY,
	country_name VARCHAR (40) DEFAULT NULL,
	region_id INT (11) NOT NULL,
	FOREIGN KEY (region_id) REFERENCES regions (region_id) ON DELETE CASCADE ON UPDATE CASCADE
);

CREATE TABLE locations (
	location_id INT (11) AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
	street_address VARCHAR (40) DEFAULT NULL,
	postal_code VARCHAR (12) DEFAULT NULL,
	city VARCHAR (30) NOT NULL,
	state_province VARCHAR (25) DEFAULT NULL,
	country_id CHAR (2) NOT NULL,
	FOREIGN KEY (country_id) REFERENCES countries (country_id) ON DELETE CASCADE ON UPDATE CASCADE
);

CREATE TABLE jobs (
	job_id INT (11) AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
	job_title VARCHAR (35) NOT NULL,
	min_salary DECIMAL (8, 2) DEFAULT NULL,
	max_salary DECIMAL (8, 2) DEFAULT NULL
);

CREATE TABLE departments (
	department_id INT (11) AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
	department_name VARCHAR (30) NOT NULL,
	location_id INT (11) DEFAULT NULL,
	FOREIGN KEY (location_id) REFERENCES locations (location_id) ON DELETE CASCADE ON UPDATE CASCADE
);

CREATE TABLE employees (
	employee_id INT (11) AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
	first_name VARCHAR (20) DEFAULT NULL,
	last_name VARCHAR (25) NOT NULL,
	email VARCHAR (100) NOT NULL,
	phone_number VARCHAR (20) DEFAULT NULL,
	hire_date DATE NOT NULL,
	job_id INT (11) NOT NULL,
	salary DECIMAL (8, 2) NOT NULL,
	manager_id INT (11) DEFAULT NULL,
	department_id INT (11) DEFAULT NULL,
	FOREIGN KEY (job_id) REFERENCES jobs (job_id) ON DELETE CASCADE ON UPDATE CASCADE,
	FOREIGN KEY (department_id) REFERENCES departments (department_id) ON DELETE CASCADE ON UPDATE CASCADE,
	FOREIGN KEY (manager_id) REFERENCES employees (employee_id)
);

CREATE TABLE dependents (
	dependent_id INT (11) AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
	first_name VARCHAR (50) NOT NULL,
	last_name VARCHAR (50) NOT NULL,
	relationship VARCHAR (25) NOT NULL,
	employee_id INT (11) NOT NULL,
	FOREIGN KEY (employee_id) REFERENCES employees (employee_id) ON DELETE CASCADE ON UPDATE CASCADE
);

Now load the data by pasting these into the terminal:

User (optional step)

Although it is easiest to just do the exercises as a super user, logging in with
sudo mysql you might instead want to do these exercises as a normal user. To do that, first log in first as as super user, then create a user and grant permissions.

CREATE USER 'jamesbaldwin'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'Password123';
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON sql_tutorial.* TO 'jamesbaldwin'@'localhost';

Where sql_tutorial is replaced by the name of your database.
Where Password123 is replaced by a password.

Logging in for that user will be with

mysql -u jamesbaldwin -p
