Also, MuddyBucket said that if I wanted to be a hacker I should spend several months on web development first.

Why do I get conflicted answers on this? The people at my school say what you say but the people on Reddit agree with MuddyBucket.

Do both answers work?

Both answers work. We all have different experiences with this, and that's why you're getting different answers.

For learning SQL I recommend:
  1. Codecademy 
  2. Khan Academy
  3. w3Schools Quiz
Boring but you'll remember. When that's done, make sure to actually do some project or something to apply your knowledge to something. So it will stick.
I'm going to create a tutorial series for this later though.

Further learning (Google to find more):
At this point I'd recommend you to go ahead and set up your own database somewhere. Find some big datasets or test databases to import. Connect to it with mysql workbench and start playing around. Create your own stored procedures, tables, views etc.

I'm gonna take your advice. I'm gonna get around to this basic web development this summer after I learn some networking concepts. I think I'm gonna be good at this stuff very quickly now that I'm focused.
