has been an announcement mail here with a recipe on how to do

If you don't quite understand it now, don't worry and save it for

As for SQL there are several extensions, we call them eggs,
available. All of them help you building your queries and taking care
of escaping your variable input if necessary.

You can search all the available extensions and the manual using the

Since your questions sound to me like you still need some time to get

Welcome on board!
