SQL for Web Nerds, a draft manuscript by Philip Greenspun who is also the author of Philip and Alex's Guide to Web Publishing.

MySQL is an open source database management system that is known for being incredibly fast, although it does not support as many SQL constructs as other database management systems. Some uses of MySQL require a commercial license, consult the GNU Public License for details.

PostgreSQL is another open source database management system. It supports almost all SQL constructs, including subselects, transactions, and user-defined types and functions. Many believe it to be the most advanced open-source database.

A comparison between MySQL and PostgreSQL offers a real-world comparison about the strengths and weaknesses of these two major players in the open source database domain.

The Oracle Technology Network provides a number of resources for Oracle developers.
