I love SQL as well, but SQL is too low level for "data scientists" that are used to copy paste scripts from the internet and working with pre-baked packages.





Admittedly, there are data scientists in roles that consist of hacking together opague scripts until something comes out. But I do think people misperceive SQL as "low level" compared to R/Python, when ironically, SQL is actually high level, in terms of a programming language.
