MySQL - Introduction
MySQL is one of the most used database servers on the Internet. Part of its popularity comes from the tight integration with PHP, but ASP.NET can use it as well. By using the Odbc classes from the .NET framework, you can easily work with a MySQL database.
This tutorial will not cover installing MySQL, nor will it cover SQL in general. It will focus on using MySQL with ASP.NET.
Follow the next chapters to get started with using MySQL together with ASP.NET. We will cover topics from the first connection to databinding and much more.
