2013 is done, what's next? (Learning SQL)

Hey guys, hope 2013 was great for everyone. I was incredibly fortunate and am looking forward to trying to make 2014 the best year possible. My main goal for 2014 is to learn how to write SQL. Now that I've told you that, let me explain why. My job is basically a quality assurance/quality control type of job. I test for a division of the bank I work at and really enjoy it. However, I'm only on a year contract and when I have to apply for new jobs I'd like to have another skill that helps me stand out. Not only that, I find writing any type incredibly interesting and it's incredibly important in the world of data. However I have absolutely no experience with it.

Some of you may remember my blog post last year about my datamining struggles and how I had no idea what I was doing with MATLAB. It was then I realized how difficult it was to write code with no experience however at the same time it intrigued me and I made it a priority to do some research on that. Fast forward about 9 months later to my current job and talking with people from the tech team, and they mentioned how writing code isn't that hard once you get past the initial learning curve and understand the logic. Now I take this with a grain of salt since most people will tell you when they know something that it isn't very difficult, but again it was encouraging to hear.

Not only that, in my recent spare time I have been watching TED Talks. They're incredibly interesting and motivating and a great source of information. From that I've become much more determined to be more productive in my spare time. While watching TV and playing video games has its place in helping to relax and stay sane for me, it's something I'd like to do less of and be a bit more productive in my spare time. That's not to say I'll completely shut those things out entirely, however when I get bored with TV instead of finding something new to watch I'll go ahead and continue with my education of SQL.

Now I have no experience with writing code, and am curious where to start. I'm going to head to barnes and noble today or tomorrow and try to pick up a book on the basics and then go from there. Does anyone out there have any experience with this and have any tips, Learning resources, etc? Trying to give myself the best possible chance to succeed and any help would be appreciated.

Hope all DCers that are still playing poker keep crushing. May 2014 be great for you.

- Think about what you want to accomplish or make with your programming skill and find a language that fits with that.
I wouldn't start with SQL since it is not a programming language (SQL is more easy btw, you can pick it up along the way).
- Try some excersizes on http://www.codecademy.com/
- Post some noob questions on the 2P2 programming forum
