Explaining the case for MySQL

My faithful readers, please spare 10 mins of your time, and read Baron's excellent post: https://vividcortex.com/blog/2014/04/30/why-mysql

Nuff said.


Since I can't really shut up, and only if you do like my (humble) take on this, I could say in short:

Every technology/platform/framework I choose, will end up surprising me, limiting me for things can be done easily, and throw many painful challenges at me if and when I need to do things that are closer to the platform's "edges". This is true for everything including Rails, JEE, Hibernate, MongoDB, MySQL.

I've learned that the more mature, generically-capable, transparent and ecosystem-rich a solution is - the less painful surprises for me in the worst timings - and more successful I am in my job.
