This Made Me Laugh: SQL v NoSQL

It’s a humorous history lesson on SQL (and product promotion), but it opens like this:

battle

SQL awakens to fight the dark forces of NoSQL

From there it looks at the beginnings of SQL and the growth of NoSQL, going through a few sections, like

newhope

Part 1: A New Hope

and

strike

Part 2: NoSQL Strikes Back

before moving to

return

Part 3: Return of the SQL

They finish with the idea that SQL is the most important, and common, tool for data analysis. In this era of Python and R, many may disagree, but I think they’re overall right.

Perhaps this last part proves that?

It’s an interesting read, and I may have to watch some Star Wars this weekend.
