How I learned SQL?
A little bit different from my posts about learning Python and how I learned R.
This is kind of the third article I am publishing about "How I learned" stuff and especially "Data languages"
The story behind the learning
The story behind the "Why did I learn SQL" is kind of funny: at the time still working as a Data Analyst in Luxembourg, I was creating reports with Power BI and we were building out data platform, so I took my chance and participated.
I knew very little about engineering or coding languages ... but I was curious and eagger to learn.
Following that I learn the "simple"
1SELECT *2FROM data_base_name3LIMIT 10
The second real article about SQL
This is my second artcile about SQL on this blog, the first one was SQL 101 where I added some useful tips I learned along the way working with SQL. Yes, my SQL 101 is simple, but it's a intorduction and some tips 😇
SQL is used everywhere
I am not joking, I realised that using SQL helped me better understand lots of things and I could use what I learned on a lot of things:
- Inside the
QUERY()formula of Google Spreadsheet
- Connecting Google Big Query to Google Spreadsheet
- Behing able to look at data by myself and dig a little bit
- Doing quick analysis, extractions & table to present to people
