    SQLite is a powerful embedded database engine that's a core storage technology in Android and iOS applications. In this installment of the Database Clinic series—in which experts and their databases of choice are pitted against a series of the same challenges— Mark Niemann-Ross demonstrates how to leverage SQLite to solve common database problems. After providing a brief overview of the strengths and weaknesses of SQLite, Mark explains how to create a database and populate it using a public dataset. He also shows how to use a SQLite database with programming languages such as Python and R, handle subqueries and queries in SQLite, and more.

DB Browser is an open-source SQLite browser, written in C++ and available on GitHub. The official download page is at There are installable versions for Macintosh, for Windows, for Portable Applications, and for Linux. As well as the original source code. Once you've installed DB Browser for SQLite, importing a dataset is incredibly easy. First, create a new database.
