MySQL is a very intuitive database schema. the ease of use is excellent. learning sql and applying it to mySQL is very easy to do and makes ones life of organizing data much easier. It is one of the largest languages (database languages) in the entire world, which means there is a lot of support and troubleshooting available online. Searching for solutions to common problems is very easy and can be solved just by doing a quick online search.
mySQL is a bit hard to learn initially. If you are starting from a language such as Java or Python, learning SQL is not the easiest thing to do. The language is much more of instructions rather than programming. for large scale and huge sets of data, mySQL may not be the most efficient tool as it does not scale too well. for smaller sets of data, MySQL is much easier and better to use. MySQL also does not support data partitions which makes analyzing large sets of data impossible (or extremely slow)
Make sure to spend time learning it and getting comfortable with MySQL!
We are creating huge databases to store information. We currently are storing costs and prices for our items in mySQL. We also use a lot of machine learning and data science tools to analyze and evaluate data. there are a lot of artificial intelligence libraries and tools that can be used along side with MySQL that make MySQL that much more powerful.
