        Course success stories

        Learn together and share experiences with other industry professionals

        The CoRise SQL course was a fantastic crash course. It took me from very little SQL knowledge to being able to answer questions within my own company's database. While this is an intro course, it is a great place to start a journey into learning SQL.

        Jordan M.Digital Optimization at YNAB

        The structure and accountability of this course was fabulous! It pushed me to complete the course in a set amount of time, interact with other participants, and speak up in lectures and office hours. I would definitely recommend CoRise to my friends and colleagues!

        I appreciated Sesh's dedication to everyone in the SQL course, and the fact that he incorporated feedback to make sure that the course was most effective.
