I’ve been studying SQL for a minute (actually more like 20 hours).The post is more for myself to share what I’ve been up to. I see SQL as important for product managers. This is because you can query the database directly and get more access to metrics.
Yesterday I finished “Intro to SQL – Querying And Managing Data” course on Khan Academy. Overall, it was a pretty good course. I wanted to make some notes on what I have learned in the past few days. I really like their method of teaching where they have a 5 minute video lecture and then interactive exercises. You can learn at your own pace. If you don’t understand something, you can pause, rewind and watch that section again.
