Quite An Analogy

Last night my son, who is doing Computer Studies at school, asked if I knew anything about SQL as they were starting to learn it. My reply was something along the lines of “Only enough to work with it every day.”

Apparently they will be using Microsoft Access to do this and when I mentioned this to a colleague, he commented that using Access to learn SQL was like using Frontpage to learn HTML, which made me chuckle.
