Can I actually learn SQL in 10 days?

SQL is a programming language for databases and it would take months and year of experience to master SQL. Luckily, business professionals only need to know a small fraction of the language to be proficient in it.

Business professionals only need to know how to retrieve data from a database. Database developers, the engineers who set up and manage databases, are the ones who need to know SQL from the inside out.

SQL is one of the easiest programming languages to learn for business professionals because there is a limited amount of things to learn. Other programming languages that business professionals use like Python and VBA take months, if not years, of constant practice to master.
