I recently heard someone pronounce SQL as "Sequel". Is that actually the correct pronunciation? Have I been saying it wrong all those years?

    Some people made it their slang word for MySQL, I don't think it's a thing.

    So if there's PSQL, would that be "prequel"? Lol jk. To each its own, like pronouncing gif

    Depends if I want to be formal or if I'm not talking about PostgresQL.

    I always thought sequel is a Microsoft pronunciation thing

    If you search on devRant you will find multiple debates on this. They are all wrong. It's MyAssQuEll.

    There is an older version of SQL called SEQUEL(so the prequel of SQL is SEQUEL)

    They changed the name to SQL from Sequel because Sequel was already a trademark, so I guess the official pronunciation should be S Q L
