MySQL allows for dates and times to be entered in a "relaxed" format, and then translates those entries into a standardized format. In this lab, we will be working with the date, time, datetime, and timestamp datatypes and then show how MySQL handles each one.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
