I'm currently doing Modern Big Data Analysis with SQL on Coursera and I would recommend it. Probably there are plenty of other resources for free.

I'm thinking about working on my SQL with the Modern Big Data Analysis with SQL Specialization course.

Most courses that teach SQL focus on traditional relational databases, but today, more and more of the data that’s being generated is too big to be stored there, and it’s growing too quickly to be efficiently stored in commercial data warehouses. Instead, it’s increasingly stored in distributed clusters and cloud storage. These data stores are cost-efficient and infinitely scalable.

To query these huge datasets in clusters and cloud storage, you need a newer breed of SQL engine: distributed query engines, like Hive, Impala, Presto, and Drill. These are open source SQL engines capable of querying enormous datasets. This Specialization focuses on Hive and Impala, the most widely deployed of these query engines.

But there's also a SQL Spark course.

On top of that I want to do Udacity's Data Engineering nanodegree program free for a month.

I'm lost.
