PHP and MySQL prep

I noticed that a new addition to the Shirts4Mike store is coming soon about joining PHP with a MySQL database according to the roadmap and I was wondering if it's going to start from the basics with MySQL or do I need to take the MySQL database course first?

The emphasis on the PHP & MySQL course will be on connecting to MySQL, so it would be helpful to get familiar with SQL first. I would recommend taking at least the first three badges of the Database Foundations course. I'll cover some of those basics, but I'll refer people to Andrew's course for more details.
