MySQL Workbench is the default IDE for MySQL and the most popular IDE among MySQL Developers and Administrator. There are three major sections in MySQL Workbench.
1) Developement – Developer can perform various activities related to SQL development in this area. For example – building queries, executing queries, etc
2) Administration – Administration can do various activities related to MySQL server administration in this area. For example – taking backup, restoring a database, etc.
3) Data Modeling – Database Designer can model MySQL database in this area. For example – building relationship tables, schema compare etc
I noticed that there is no proper tutorial available on this subject online or in the form of course. Upon discussing with few DBA friends and the kind folks at Pluralsight, I decided to build a course which focuses on the key features of MySQL Workbench. This course is very much demo oriented and there is very little theory in the terms of PowerPoint. MySQL user can easily learn various features of the MySQL Workbench and increase his or her efficiency. In this course I have included many different tips and tricks which are commonly unknown to MySQL Workbench users.
Here is the outline of the course: MySQL Workbench Guided Tour
