I like manipulating data on a code level.
This is what a lot of my professional life has been about.
And so, using SQL has been integral to that.
You can do much more using a rich language, than you could ever do using a graphical drag and drop user interface. Why?
Because you have much more scope to do stuff that’s new, that people haven’t thought of before. A language gives you more options.
When you’re just using a graphical interface, there is a tendency to depend more on what people have thought of before, or have already specifically designed for you.
