As a senior architect for enterprise systems, I was drawn to data persistence. So, for over a decade, I stayed in touch with SQL capabilities. It's funny how, in order to find out how much you don't know, you have to be exposed to more knowledgeable people. For me, after having Vlad in our company to deliver a high-level workshop, my previous feeling of being connected to SQL soon shifted to realizing that I've been only scratching the surface when it comes to SQL.
The feedback from our colleagues was diverse, varying from "the next level of SQL", "great examples with real application use-cases", to "wow, can SQL do that?", and "we should give more time to analyzing SQL queries in our projects since data growth can lead to performance issues".
SQL, as any programming language has evolved, both conceptually and practically. Vlad's training presented all these new SQL standard features in a way that was understandable and applicable for every colleague of ours, regardless of their programming language or the SQL database system they are currently using.
