Database Programming Made Easy


In this tutorial I will discuss to you on how you can access the database easily. I came across this idea because this is also my problem when I started working with database programming.

I hope that in one way or another I can help you in your journey to the world of programming. Programming is fun and easy if you just simply devout your time with it. I cannot stress enough how easy programming is if you only read an online tutorial like this.

Take It Easy

Just don’t be rush in learning programming. Take it easy and study everyday. Don’t start right away thinking that you can create a system like payroll, accounting, hotel reservation, point of sale without even having a single knowledge about database programming.

Learning by Doing

Learning by doing is the next thing. You need to practice what you learn. In this tutorial I encourage you to take the sample code into practice.

I will list below the content that I am going to discuss. This is a series of tutorial so be sure to visit the site regularly or subscribe to my Feeds at the right side bar.

I will arrange the topic according to their importance, that is, what to do first before you jump ahead to the next topic. Along the way, I will add a topic before or after other topic or whatever that will come to my mind that I know a must have tutorial.

I have just started database programming today, and I still know absolutely nothing about it. What is used to program (i.e. code compiler, Web Editor, etc.)? If you need to contact me, go to my website, Ch'Ræn Creations.

I still am confused on what database programming actually is, as in, what do you do database programming in? Is it in JavaScript? C#? C++? Python? Boo Script? Or does is it its own language?

Please email me or go to my website.
