    Build a CRUD app using LAMP stack on your own. If you get stuck on a certain part google it and document it. I swear this is the best way to learn

      Not sure that the OP is best served by a CRUD app, perhaps the time spent learning the stack would be better spent learning SQL itself.

      Question to OP : make sure you understand where you are headed - do you need to know a specific database, do you need to adhere to a specific SQL standard?

      Look for training that includes CTE, window expressions, and parallelization techniques, etc - there’s a ton of sites that just cover the old standards and you miss out on a lot

      SQL was initially developed at IBM by Donald Chamberlin and Raymond Boyce. It was initially called “Structured English Query Language” (SEQUEL) and pronounced “sequel”, though it later had to have it's name shortened to “Structured Query Language” (SQL) due to trademark issues

    Leetcode has a SQL section, pgexercises.com is also pretty good.

    I just did w3schools. But, DB normalization is some hard shit that required me to take a class to figure out in college

      There are fantastic BCNF tutorials on YouTube that are easily 10x better then any lecture

      My lecturer gave a fuck and was not foreign, so I disagree... BCNF is some shit though, so you might be right.
