I hope this is the right place for posting this, but if not, please let me know!
I recently took a second class in Python programming which, toward the end, also taught a little bit of SQL. As it turns out, SQL was the part of the class that I enjoyed the most. So, over the summer, I am thinking of acquiring a Microsoft certification in SQL. However, before engaging myself in that, I wanted to ask if this certification is likely to benefit my career plans directly or indirectly (I am planning to pursue a Masters in Statistics, with probably some data science component in a couple years).
Do statisticians use SQL in their work? Is it reasonable to assume that SQL might become prevalent in statisticians' work in 10 or so years?
