HI I'M WALTER

I'VE BEEN HELPING PEOPLE MASTER SQL AND DATABASES.
HERE'S HOW I CAN HELP YOU.

I've worked with SQL and databases for over 18 years, helping organizations such as Target Corporation, NYC Transit Authority and Bank of America successfully leverage and understand their data using SQL

I remember how intimidating SQL was when I first started studying it. While I've definitely learned SQL the hard way, I knew it didn’t have to be so daunting, so I decided to create my own course, teaching SQL in a very approachable way, with real life examples and concepts. I created a course that I would’ve wanted when I first started out. With my course I've helped hundreds of people get introduced to the basic principles of SQL in the past year alone!

In the process, I've heard from many aspiring SQL students that they needed more than just technical help. They need guidance starting or redirecting their career using SQL. They need someone who's been there and done it to help them through the process.

That's why I created STRAIGHT TO SQL, to help aspiring job seekers learn from my successes - and failures - in getting my own SQL career off the ground.

STRAIGHT TO SQL gives you everything you need to start your career in SQL successfully.

~A complete understanding of all necessary technical SQL commands and operations~

~A working knowledge of SQL to start a job using this skill~

~Effective career strategies that maximize your success on the job market~

~Access to SQL veteran (me!) to coach and guide you through the rough patches~

My personal road to mastery of SQL began in the late nineties. At the time, opportunities to learn SQL in a formal, institutional setting were quite scarce, as the phenomenon of big data had not come to maturity. In lieu of any real scholastic alternative, I matriculated into the school of hard knocks—I learned SQL by trial and error, mostly error. It took 18 years, a few degrees, and more than a few lucky breaks before I succeeded in acquiring an authoritative, professional-level command over the language and applications of SQL. Here is the good news: it does not have to be as difficult for you as it was for me.

This course is your definitive beginner’s guide—the kind of resource I wish I’d had access to when I was just beginning in this field
