A quick elementary post which is my entry to this months’ T-SQL Tuesday entry hosted by a good friend SQLDoubleG http://www.sqldoubleg.com/2017/07/03/tsql2sday-92-lessons-learned-the-hard-way/.
We are here to talk about mistakes we used to make. There is one mistake that I am going to discuss and is something that I used to do 10 years ago, obviously I do not do this anymore.
After using Microsoft SQL Server for over 10 years going back to MySQL feels weird BUT with Azure it is really easy to build a MySQL database and I have a feeling that this might be the start of an incoming change for some. For this post I want to show you what Azure currently offers I then create a MySQL database and connect to it via Azure Cloud Shell.
