"Convenient module to incorporate SQL inside Python code"

What do you like best?

Possibility to use SQL from inside Python code.

What do you dislike?

I like everything with the package itself, only rather often it's not useful: usually, we want to manage and clean data before launching the code, as the code runs in parallel on multiple servers, and the data used are the same.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are working with databases and Python, It's worthwhile to download and incorporate Python MySql (and you can find a good tutorial here: https://www.w3schools.com/python/python_mysql_getstarted.asp)

However, using SQL separately prior to launching Python code in many cases may be easier and more practical.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am data scientist and work a lot with various databases. Often they are not clean, badly ordered etc., and I use SQL to query, order and rearrange them. Possibility to do it from inside Python code using Python MySQL often comes handy.

"Ease in putting data in and taking data out using Python"

What do you like best?

Modeling on big databases has always been an issue now. MySQL python comes with great ease to extract such samples of big databases to run your python scripts.

What do you dislike?

There are certain issues on installing MySQL python on your systems. Even after installing it, there are errors on importing it. This can be made better.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Python is world-wide appreciated for its capabilities. But this is big data driven world and we need efficient software, platforms and programs to solve the business problems. It is very convenient to do data modeling in Python because of its intensive libraries and packages. MySQL Python allowed us to achieve that by extracting databases successfully and carry on with modeling.

"Great library from mysql"

What do you like best?

The fact that this library will seamlessly do what I want as if i was using the workbench or the terminal is amazing.

What do you dislike?

I find that for almost any library like this, it's almost required to have the database up at all times during development or testing - sometimes this isn't possible so it's hard to make sure what you're writing will work.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for the 'best' database library, this one should be up there. It's professional, the API is great, and the answers to questions are very substantial on stackoverflow. I don't think there isn't something online that I haven't been able to find when a problem arose.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've been implementing databases with my senior design project. It's made connected to my database very easy, and without it I'm not sure how I would be doing it.

"review for mysql python"

What do you like best?

It is a user friendly application. It is easy to install and has great connectivity with most of the operating systems like linux. You can easily explore all the functionalities of the application. It has good libraries for the new users.

What do you dislike?

This application is good for 32 bits of python but not for 64 bits. It sometimes slows down the database which is sometimes annoying. Other than that it is a great application and i would any day recommend it to everybody.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly recommend this application to anyone looking to advance in the web services and coding.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used it to write codes for constructing a new application for my health system. I have also used it for structuring data for the different insurance payers to send them data related to quality management.

"MySQL database saved us a lot of time "

What do you like best?

The tools are easy to use. It can be used to search through databases if you're having issues finding information. The search fearures are nice and there was a ton of support material online.

What do you dislike?

You need to be proficient in programming or it becomes difficult to fully understand. I didn't find many issues with using the software. I recommend reading some tutorials before hand in order to better use the software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It made it easier to search for information in a database that was already built. It also allowed us to modify and build onto existing databases.

"Easy Database Management"

What do you like best?

Runs relatively quickly and lets me integrate SQL queries into my python data analysis. Documentation is easy to get through and makes sense.

What do you dislike?

The software is great. I really don't have too many complaints. Installing it can be a bit of a trial, so I'd probably simplify that to be done with a simple 'pip install mysql' command. I generally default to using SQLite just because the installation is easier.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Google the installation process and follow that instead of just doing pip install.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use mysql python to access the company's database of banking transactions. Normally I pull the dataset and put it into a CSV file and use the CSV version to manipulate through python, but I've realized I have a lot more flexibility if I interact with the data through MySQL directly.

"Python for MySQL Databases"

What do you like best?

I like how Python MySQL is a great library that lets me query a MySQL database in my financial programs instead of having to open up a clunky editor.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how the Python MySQL library is open source and thus hard to work with if you're not a developer. I got help so I am fine.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business i'm solving with mysql python is the ability to interface with the mysql database and run analytic queries.

"Nice convenient tool"

What do you like best?

Convenient to use - running quietly requiring very low maintenance. Allowing users to connect to MySQL databases from Python and query/manipulate/fetch data. As long as the drivers are installed correctly there is nothing to worry about if you have this tool.

What do you dislike?

When the volume of the data is too big, data fetching can be a bit slow, indicating there is something to be optimized (either the database itself or the MyAQL Python tool itself).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great tool for data people (data scientists, data analysts, etc.), helping them with data needs from Python

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Connecting to MySQL databases from Python to query/manipulate/fetch data.

What do you like best?

I like how it is very secure. It protects the data using solid data security layers.

It’s an open source and user friendly. I like that it can be learnt fairly fast. And also how I’m able to bring best of both worlds together - oracle and java. It’s a revolutionary tool. And I totally enjoy using it and supporting our client
