Add MySQL, the most prevalent free database in the Linux world, to your development machine. MySQL completes the LAMP stack.
By Joe Pluta
The previous article on PHP guided you through the first part of Catherine Gaughan-Smith’s third video tutorial on installing the Ubuntu LAMP stack. That part of the video focused on PHP, leaving the remaining five minutes or so to cover the installation of MySQL. Today, we’ll work through that portion. We’ll configure MySQL, and we’ll also add a new SQL plug-in called DBeaver to our PHP Development Tools (PDT) environment.
For some, Entity Relationship Diagrams (ERDs) are old friends that you still visit once in a while and have some fun with. For others…not so much. Let’s try to help the latter get up to speed on ERDs.
By Rafael Victória-Pereira
An Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD) is a visual representation of different data using conventions that describe how these data relate to each other. While able to describe just about any system, ERDs are most often associated with the complex databases used in software engineering and IT networks. In particular, ERDs are frequently used during the design stage of a development process to identify different system elements and their relationships to each other. As you might imagine, this can be particularly helpful when modernizing a database.

IBM today announced it has built Pangea III, the world's most powerful commercial supercomputer for Total, a supermajor global energy company operating in more than 130 countries. The new IBM POWER9-based supercomputer will help Total more accurately locate new resources and better assess the potential associated revenue opportunities. In addition, according to Total Pangea III requires 1.5 Megawatts, compared to 4.5 MW for its predecessor system. Combined with the increased performance of Pangea III, Total has reported that they have observed that the new system uses less than 10% the energy consumption per petaflop as its predecessor.
