Different people, different moods, different ideology. To perfectly give what people want from a blog is not possible, the technology that’s being used on any blog in the world is still primitive.

3 Most Used Database Management/Development System

Image
MySQL Workbench, SSMS and Navicat Managing database can not be done by just using simple command line queries. Sometimes it's to complicated so we need to have a graphical user interface to get things done with our database. Wit a management tool, you can do many database operations much more quickly, you can just navigate to different menus and buttons that are available on the program you are using. Here are my top three favorite database management system I usually use when I need to be doing some database operations. 1. MySQL Workbench It's kind of like the official database  management tool for MySQL. It quit comprehensive on doing some database stuff. It can only be used if you are using MySQL database, well maybe you can use it for MariaDB, which two databases have no significance differences. But from my experience. I have tried basic functionalities like queries, schema design only. I am not sure if it can be compatible for more advanced operations.
