Developing and programming with databases is a huge step onto a large plateau of information. Nobody starts out with MySQL and masters the software in a week. Not only do you need to learn setting up DBs and tables, but also the SQL language itself.

Thus I have scoured through Google and put together 28 of my personal favorite MySQL tutorials for newbies. You can learn all the basics of setting up a database and connecting into your own application. But additionally if you have any questions or comments on the gallery, feel free to share with us in the discussion below.
