I had previously tried other courses to bolster my understanding of SQL but I found these courses hard to understand and didn’t find them particularly helpful for how I wanted to use SQL.
When I started Enki, I didn’t know what to expect. However, my experience with Enki was completely different to previous platforms I had used! I loved the flexibility of EnkiCamp which allowed me to take an active role in my learning and ensured that the content was suited to my needs.
Previously I was stuck having to wait for the more SQL literate members of the team to help with problems - this created a serious bottleneck. With my new understanding of SQL and relational databases, I am now able to better communicate my needs to the engineers but also validate any questions I ask. This allows me to take an active role in data processes as well as increasing the efficiency in which I work with my engineers – saving everybody time!
Enki really showed me that SQL can be such a strong tool. After the course I am now able to understand what goals to set for the company, measure outcomes more efficiently and properly retrieve and manipulate the large amount of data my company has access to.
I particularly enjoyed the project at the end as it allowed me to create something tangible that was immediately useful for my team. In fact, after the creation of my project I was able to convince my boss to implement a whole new strategy!
