This book is aimed at intermediate- to advanced-level programmers looking to include database functionality within their applications. You should have at least a basic working knowledge of one of the languages covered by this bookC/C++, PHP, Perl, Python, or Tcl. The underlying library is written in C/C++; however, it is not necessary to understand that language in order to use the full capabilities of SQLite in your applications.

If you are a new programmer you should still be able to pick up SQLite fairly quickly, but this book does not cover programming basics in any of the languages for which there is a SQLite interface. The benefits of SQLite are only realized through using a programming API as it does not include the tools required to operate as a standalone database system.

It is not a prerequisite to have used a relational database in the past. If SQLite will be the first SQL-based database you have encountered, the book gives a thorough SQL tutorial covering the syntax as understood by SQLite. SQL veterans will still benefit from reviewing the sections that cover features included and omitted by SQLite.
