sql-2.avif SQL

MySQL is an open-source relational database management system (RDBMS) that uses Structured Query Language (SQL) to manage and manipulate data. It is one of the most widely used databases in the world and is known for its speed, scalability, and reliability.

MySQL can be used for a variety of purposes, including storing data for websites and web applications, managing data for business applications, and more. It allows users to create, modify, and manage tables, columns, and relationships between data in a simple and efficient manner.

MySQL is supported on multiple platforms, including Windows, Linux, and macOS, and it is available in both community and enterprise editions.

We have solved few introductory problems for anyone who has recently started learning SQL and want to gain hands on experience on real life like data. We have also provided the solution along with each task, so if you get stuck in any of it, we can help you to successfully solve all of the queries.
