  1. Thanks Christi for following my blog and really appreciate your feedback on you liking the content. With regards to SQL training I would say if you would look at being a DBA, Data Analyst or simply working with data for reporting perspective having a knowledge of SQL the language is quite handy. SQL Server as a product is quite a big product now which encompasses not only the database engine but ETL, Reporting, OLAP, Data Warehousing, etc. So it is really hard to provide a response to your question as it is quite open. Hope this helps
