MYSQL Forever!

Overall Satisfaction with MySQL

We have multiple projects as Masters students in Software Engineering at SJSU be in hackathons or academic projects. MySQL helps quickly deploy the database when the project demands relational schema and it's easy to use SQL queries and drivers help build high quality ACID DB instantaneously with a good DB design.
  • Relational Schema
  • Support for all major programming languages
  • Open source
  • The CLI can be more intuitive to the users.
  • Highly efficient software which has been used by me and my peers for many many years. Highly recommend it.
Easy to use for non relational schema and JSON format storage gives it an edge sometimes.
If the application at the front end requires JSON, MongoDB is easier in that case. Also if you do not care about the relational schema then NoSQL is more suited to dump the data without worrying about DB constraints.
