- [Voiceover] Hi there, I'm Sheeri Cabral. Welcome to Up and Running with MySQL. MySQL is the world's most popular open source database and powers many different types of applications, from a tiny blog to web giants like Facebook, Twitter and Etsy. The goal of this course is to get you interacting with data in MySQL. We'll take a look at some general topics like why databases are better than spreadsheets for many purposes and then we'll explore the databases that come with the MySQL installation. We'll take a look at creating and modifying a database as well as how to read data back out.
I'll explain terms and acronyms that you're likely to come across and, in a series of challenges, I'll ask you to work with entering and retrieving information yourself. This course focuses on working with databases at the command line, not database server administration or installation. Now, let's get up and running with MySQL development.
