I get VBA and Excel (programmatically, like interops) but... SQL is a no go for you? Is it all SQL or No-SQL like mongo is ok?
I only get this exclusion if you are a purely frontend developer
7Raiden9403y@mmcorreia Honestly, it depends! I don't want to write queries exclusively, or in a relevant percentage in my job.
So, yes, I tend to say that I'm not ok in working with SQL, as in the past it turned out to be "do-this-for-this-guy" job. I'm a quant dev (also, neither full front- nor backend), and even though I understand SQL I don't want to end up doing *only* that! I expect every quant Dev understand SQL, so if you put that in the job specs, I already got some bad feelings!
Then, again, some other believe SQL is super cool and it probably is ;)
@7Raiden ok, what I get from your reply is that you steer away from full SQL jobs like BI, and to that I say "I hear ya!"
I'm full stack and although I know SQL it is not an area I feel comfortable or like, so full SQL no way... Some SQL to get data for an end-to-end feature, it's ok... If that SQL is too complex due to database design, send me a BI guy to do that please...
