Reliance on dbplyr vs SQL?

Hello! Iím a sophomore in college whose dabbled into a couple languages in data science, two of them being R and python. I like both and I use them quite often, and lately Iíve been learning SQL because, well, itís good to know for internships and something which seems to be sought after. However, As a big fan of the tidyverse, Iíve come across dbplyr, a wrapper for dplyr for manipulating databases with R, and creating queries with the standard dplyr syntax. The result is the same as if you were using SQL. Iím wondering what your guys thoughts are for any of you who have used dbplyr, and how it is received by people who use SQL. Is it something which is not used as much? Or is it not worth knowing? It seems like an ďeasyĒ way of writing traditional sql queries. Any thoughts/opinions would be great, thanks.

it's a good way to abstract SQL away from data science work

if your focus is DS, then definitely double down on it
