Getting started with MySql

What is MySQL?

MySQL is database software like MongoDB, no one really uses MySQL anymore but the more you know the better it is.

I thought you couldn't use MySQL on repl.it?

Well, actually you can. You can create a database with remotemysql and remotemysql will host your database on their servers so you don't have to host your own database. I always use remotemysql whenever I decide to create a MySQL database.

Why should I use MySQL?

Well, MySQL is free and easy to use. And you can run it from basically anywhere.

How do I get started?

Well you can first go and visit the repl and then learn more about it from w3Schools

Conclusion

MySQL is pretty cool and you should use it
