MySQL Skill Sprints

MySQL allows us to store large volumes of structured data.

MySQL and MariaDB are two, virtually identical Open Source relational database engines in development since 1995. MySQL was taken over by Oracle in 2010 which caused the project to be forked. MySQL and MariaDB are by far the most popular open-source databases.

SQL or Structured Query Language was designed nearly 50 years ago to allow easy querying of data from relational databases. It is a common language across all relational databases.

Sometimes called 'Sequel', SQL is very effective at creating, reading, updating and deleting complex data from a database.
