Demystifying Tech - Episode 3: What is a Database?

What is a Database?

A database is an organized collection of structured information, or data, typically stored electronically in a computer system. It's one of the most essential aspects of software because at its core, an application is just a way for the user to input data (using forms and buttons) and then access data on a webpage. However, the creation of the importance of a thorough database structure is often overlooked in software development.
