    Just tell him "Structured Query Language" and that will shut him up, hopefully.

    Although pronounciation guides say both is correct. Basically a similar issue to GIF.

    I had a classmate who argued about shit like this, scored below 70% on an Oracle certification exam, considered himself as an expert database man who are unlike the *others* (hint: me) who are jack of all trades, master of none. His focus and elitism on sEqUeL had him phased out soon enough. Now he can't find a job because Jesus Christ, almost everyone knows SQL, why would anyone hire a scumbag who ONLY knows SQL?

    Yeah, fuck that guy and fuck Bobby too.

    Microsoft has always use Sequel as pronunciation but at the end of the day, as long as you know what it is it does not really matter ;)

    There are more important things to disagree on than pronunciation :P

    It is probably why MySQL was invented. I say it my way...

    In all fairness all but MS call it es-ku-el.
    Helps in speech to avoid mixing up MsSQL & MySQL.
    I often squeal at MS SQL syntax crap so it kinda makes sense.

    how tf do you pronounce postgre anyway?

    Transact-Sequel, part deux, the seconding. Or polish-sequel, The Witcher version. Or database dos sequel, or polished-procedural-post-greesqueal sequal, the second. Je ne sais quoi?

    Words be like, amirite? 😆
