Thanks for bringing up this post OP. I am in the same situation, started working in accounting then transitioned to financial planning and analysis, and got really interested in data analytics beyond financial analysis/reporting. I have been learning SQL via Udacity - SQL for Data Analyst course (it's free).

For SQL I recommend this free course from Udacity.
It goes over the basics, then works up to window functions, advanced joins, and performance tuning.

What's the context? What constitutes the "basics" of SQL (or really any concept, for that matter) depends on the context.
In general, Udacity (and I'm sure other MOOCs) work well as an introduction to technical concepts. Their Intro to Relational Databases course is probably the place to start, but to reiterate my above sentiment, they also have a SQL for Data Analysis course and an Intro to Backend course, both of which go over SQL from different perspectives.
Depending on your usage, you may need to learn some coding, first, before delving directly into SQL. Those courses highlight the expected prior experience, but you'll need to determine what you need to do on your own.
