COURSES

Andrew

Querying Relational Databases – Andrew Chalkley and Kevin Nahm

Building off of previous SQL courses, this course will begin to introduce the student to more complex database concepts. Students will learn to think about data as sets and subsets and practice achieving desired query results via such operations as inner and outer joins, unions and except. They will also be introduced to the concepts of Set Theory and Database Normalization to aid in understanding good query practices.

CRUD Operations with PHP Alena Holligan

In this course we’ll delve into the full spectrum of database interactions. Whether the application is an e-commerce, or social network site, or even a todo app on your phone, the data needs to change over time. CRUD is an acronym that refers to the four main operations that you’d want to perform on data in a database: Create, Read, Update, Delete.
