DB Programming

DB not limited to MySQL and Postgress but includes Redis, MongoDB, elasticsearch etc.

The goal is to find the lowest possible tool – i.e., scheel commands would be the lowest and dedicated DB tool would be the highest. Python, Ruby, PHP would be on the lower end of the middle and Java would be on the higher.
