We are database junkies. Simply put, you can’t beet the flexibility and scalability that databases offer us in the web design world.
We prefer using MySQL which is the most common database for web projects. It integrates with PHP perfectly and together there is simply nothing more powerful. There is nothing you can’t do, but really, it’s all just data. The real difference is what you do with it. Databases are used for shopping carts, custom programs, web apps, or just keeping track of user data. Being scalable is key; flat file DBs just don’t cut it these days and most other solutions are large and cumbersome.
Using PHPMyAdmin, it’s easy to customize and create unique database projects in a snap. The interface makes it a cinch to import or export data into any number of formats. Operations such as table truncate and optimization are just a click away. Using PHP and MySQL is the perfect solution when combined with the front end HTML5 and CSS3 technologies. This is the stuff the web is made of. And we love every bit of it.
