re: Hitchhiker's guide to database types VIEW POST


Really great piece of content.. this remind me why I love backend development... Once I was working on a db projet with a friend just as a hobby and we have saw a lot problema but not all those you have described in your article, we was trying to store data in a kind of JSON form, we had even designed a language to communicate with the server. Anyway it was working fine... The experience was cool.


Thanks for sharing!
Databases are never easy - one of the reasons I react sometimes a bit harsh when people say "Oh, we're using MySQL because it's easy.".

That could mean several things:

  • complex problem not yet encountered
  • problem not understood
  • usage pattern fits database engine by coincidence
  • it seems easy because they know the toolchain very well

I think thinking hard before installing something pays out well in the long term ;-)
