Introduction to SQL
Reviewed by Matthew S. on 9/24/2018
The class was very hands on and useful in real life scenarios. Gave the basic tool to implement SQL on your personal computer and the basics to use it in a work scenario. Tommy was great at keeping the class engaged and also made the class fun.

The projector didn't work. The teacher was a competent programmer, but not an expert in SQL, the teacher would google answers to our questions. He Most of the class could have been completed without the professor using an online class. We didn't get very far content wise. The class basically consisted of a short presentation and then the students doing practice problems using a free internet resource.

I liked the instructor of this class. He was very patient and helpful. The pace of the class was good too. Not too fast and not too slow. You needed to have had some experience with SQL prior to taking the class to get the most out of it.

Joshi seemed baffled for most of the class. Really nice, but nervous. He didn’t approach it as a 101 class, spent a lot of time talking about excel, but using google sheets so he’d have to walk back his points. (Ie he wanted to make a point that SQL is better than excel bc you can’t x in excel, but you can in google sheets, so the point doesn’t land) Then when he showed the solution in SQL it didn’t pertain, so you didn’t get the underlying reasoning for what we were doing. He had a really hard time writing answers on the fly and would go back/delete/try something else, forget to include the commands so you couldn’t really follow what he was doing. Hard to learn without being able to follow or understand the underlying strategy. He did try to intermittently drop the lines into slack, however it was in an open # so everything he sent got buried. All in all nice guy, who spent a good amount of time answering individual questions, but he wouldn’t have had to had it been a little bit better structured.

Terrific course with really useful information! Alex's explanations were clear and well-organized. Good mix of instruction and practice. I hope Alex designs a Part II to this course!
