MySQL as the new passion
My new passion related to MySQL is developed, because I am supporting students for their final semester’s IT projects. So since 2006 students want to use MySQL as the backend for their project. Till now I was working on website development where MySQL is the popular backend used.
This time I have to use MySQL on my PC based applications because of some of the students they are using MySQL as I mention earlier in their applications as the backend.
This is really big revolution in the IT sector especially when we are talking about the job market, MySQL has yielded several jobs in the market for MySQL database administration and application developers.
