SQL is open source and it’s a universal language. If you learn Microsoft SQL, then you can apply the same technique in other databases like Oracle, MySQL, Microsoft Access, etc.
SQL can be used to share and manage data, particularly data that is found in relational database management systems, which include data organized into tables. Using SQL, you can query, update, and reorganize data, as well as create and modify the schema (structure) of a database system and control access to its data.
In conclusion, as a free open-source programming language, SQL is at the very foundation of data science. Communication with relational databases will be easier when you learn SQL. I would recommend that any aspiring data scientist should learn SQL because it is easy to learn, helps in a deep understanding of datasets, integrates easily with scripting languages, manages huge datasets and is indeed a gateway to lucrative data science jobs.
The average salary of SQL developer is around $90,000 in 2020 and it is the most demanding skill even before Java, Python or C++.
