    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.

The SQLite community is active and SQLite is well supported with over 19,000 repositories on GitHub. Many of these create additional features through the use of the C interface. SQLite is simple to initialize. If you have a Macintosh, Mac OS 10.4 and up, it already ships with SQLite. On other computer systems, downloading and installing is easy. SQLite is file based and cross platform compatible. The entire database is stored in one file, and is extremely portable. Copying the database file from one place to another is all that's required…
