Creating forms

I am new to Mariadb and MySQL. I am experienced with MS Access. I have an extensive Access DB that I want to convert to MariaDB. I have read MariaDB Crash Course. My question is what front-end do I use to create forms and reports? Is the best approach, use PHP or Python and create a web based application?

There are many choices. Depending on the complexity of your Access database and since I myself am a web developer, I'd write the application using a PHP framework, like Symfony, Yii, CodeIgniter, etc. Otherwise, if the frontend is complex, I would just change the database backend and use ODBC to connect to MariaDB (or MySQL). It also depends on where the frontend runs (eg. one client or more, etc.).
