    It's pretty interesting. Ive learned some of the VERY basic basics and it's neat what it can do

    Just imagine the excitement you'll feel when you trash your first production database šŸ˜ It's the office version of skydiving.

    SQL is amazing šŸ˜Š
    It's so ridiculously useful, and I love how it reads like english. (Which is one of the reasons I love Ruby)

    I started writing something like it on my own for an MMO where developers could query realtime data such as the number of players in a map who are wearing a guild tag, with equipment level > x, who had completed z quest. It was fun! And useful, too.

    It's very interesting how different people are. I myself absolutely hate all PL/SQL languages including the corresponding databases

    Sql is useful. Sql is necessary. But I wouldn't call it cool. As a C#-developer, I find it much easier to write complex logic in linq, as the sql equivalent is often very verbose.
    If we could bridge the performance gap, in a .net world, we wouldn't need sql at all.

    SQL is pain. I wish someone would create a language that's easier to use already.

    It's freaking verbose, unforgiving, and not even properly standardized (each DB has its own dialect).

    It's a mean to an end, but I wish we had more modern choices, even if that means a performance hit.

    @baeovvulf I recently decided to pick up SQL after a long stubborn cult-like devotion to NoSQL and, oh boy, was I missing out!!

    What's nice is you can spool and generate spreadsheets and even webpages using SQL. No shit. I often ask the question "Can you make a webpage using SQL?" to junior developers just to fuck with them then I demonstrate how to do it. Haha.

    Its a motherfucking must... if you cant query a fucking database you should chop your dick off.. and I'm not talking about fucking "Give me a list of users" I'm talking about "List all users with birthdate within the next sixty seconds, without living parents, in a 5 miles radius, roman catholic, white" and fucking pivot the fucking thing...

    Thats the way... OG
