MySQL is a database software. SQL(*2) is the acronym for 'Structured Query
Language'. Therefore, SQL is a programming language. You can find various
references to SQL history and usage(*2).
Python(*3) is a programming language.
An API (Application Program[ming] Interface) works like a 'glue' or a
messenger (daemon): sends information from one side to another. In our case,
sends information from Python to the SQL server, and may return a result
back to Python. Like this:
Python -> SQL Server -> Python
The API is the arrows.

Thank you very much for the tip. I'll start working on it right now.
I have another question. what's the difference between SQL and MySQL? I've
found SQL basic functions easy to work with. I suppose there are no big
differences between both lenguages, are there?
