New Venture


I’m currently working my way though through SQL and R at the moment through codeacademy. I have no prior analyst experience but I am hoping to learn the skills to move into a Junior Data Analyst position.

Does anyone know which I should I should prioritise as most important for a Data Analyst roles? SQL or R?


Hello @dharininithiya068560, welcome to the forums! Personally, I found R more difficult to learn than SQL, and SQL only queries databases, whereas in R you can do a lot more with that information from the database. I think this article explains which one will be (porbably) more helpful for data analytics well.

Maybe also a short crash course on statistics/analytical maths would be helpful as well (just to help you get thinking in an analytical way/pick up some jargon, etc).

I hope this helps!
