Databases: is the third course for Computer Science. In this course you will learn how to organize large amount of data using databases. We will compare features and capabilities of several database engines so you can select one that you need for your application. Also we will introduce you the SQL language.

Recommendations

This course is for Database Developers who wish to create back-end layers for larger applications. A database is the key ingredient to create: dynamic websites, single page APPs, digital maps or distributed APPs. Database developers are highly appreciated in any development team.

Before this course you can follow CSE: Engineering course and CSP: Programming course to learn a programming language. However databases can have dedicated programming language that you can learn as your first computer language if you do not know a computer language yet.
