The truth is SQL stands for structured query language. Many people scoff dubiously when it is announced that SQL is, indeed, a programming language.
When people think of programming languages, all that comes to their mind are C++, Python, Java, etc. People disregard SQL as a programming language because of its interface structure and limited functionality. However, they fail to understand that while C++ and Python are third level programming languages, and hence more developed, it doesn’t change the fact that SQL falls under the umbrella of programming languages.
Yes, SQL is a programming language that is used for a wide range of activities such as querying, retrieving, and extracting data from relational databases.
