Regarding intermediate level SQL, I'd highly recommend Jenniffer Widom's edx courses[0]. They have a good mix of cs theory and practical exercises, which combined gave me a big push in my approach to databases.


Databases with Jennifer Widom. I think the original course I took on Stanford's platform has now been split into 3 on edx. Amazing hands-on introduction to Database concepts

I quite liked the Web Development course taught by Steve Huffman (the founder of Reddit) on Udacity. It's possibly a bit dated right now.

+1 for Web Development with Steve Huffman. This is the course most responsible for my career as a software developer.
