In a bid to foster continuous learning and self-improvement, Techavilly initiated the 30-Day SQL Challenge—an intense month-long project designed to enhance participants’ SQL scripting skills and fortify their resilience and consistency. The challenge attracted over 200 enthusiastic individuals worldwide, showcasing their commitment to personal and professional growth.
Techavilly’s Founder, Mariam Adeyemi expressed, “Tech is not for the faint-hearted; you need staying power because issues will arise that’ll make you want to give up. But it’s totally up to you. The question is, do you want to do this? This is a question you need to answer before embarking on your tech journey.”
The 30-Day SQL Challenge proved to be a gruelling yet rewarding test of participants’ database management skills, problem-solving abilities, and SQL expertise. Over 30 days, contestants faced increasingly complex SQL queries and data manipulation tasks, pushing the boundaries of their proficiency. Only the most resilient and proficient SQL experts made it to the end, underscoring the challenging nature of the competition.
