  • hey man your videos kick ass and i cannot thank you enough for your approach with these. your videos can be watched once and understood... every single one of them... i don't know how you do it, but the way you have picked to teach anything you teach is incredible. you freaking rock! thank you!
  • Great stuff! Love that you mix in a bit of fun with the content, it's what got me to subscribe!
  • I have been working with MySQL for last 17 years and I never use cursor but your video helped me to understand MySQL cursor. Thank you
  • iterally laughing out loud several times. absolute gold.
    (partner's like "what are you watching?!" "a guy seeding a database!"
