Question

In the context of this exercise, what do we use to work with databases?

Answer

To work with databases, we use software known as database management systems, or DBMS for short. Database management systems let us do very useful things such as create and manipulate database tables, by writing and running code in the form of queries or statements. For an example, the following query will return all the rows from a database,

SELECT * 
FROM table;

Some of the most popular and well-known database management systems are SQLite which is used in the courses on Codecademy, Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, and PostgreSQL.
