Basics of Database Design and SQL in PostgreSQL
Build on your basic programming background as you learn database design and other basic skills in PostgreSQL.
About This Course
This four-week course from the University of Michigan is the first in the PostgreSQL and Python series, and delivers a solid foundation to PostgreSQL.
You’ll learn SQL fundamentals, basic CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations in PostgreSQL, and the specifics of aggregation, transactions, reading, and parsing CSV files, and entering data into a database.
Finally, a look at how PostgreSQL handles and indexes data will complete your introduction to this relational database management system (RDBMS).
Learn all you need to know about SQL programming
You’ll start by exploring basic SQL commands to implement CRUD operations in PostgreSQL, and the functions of primary, logical, and foreign keys within a database.
From there you’ll build and differentiate between one-to-many and many-to-many relationships within PostgreSQL, giving you important insights into using this RDBMS for your own database design and creation.
Throughout the course, you’ll practice the programming concepts as they are introduced to you, by completing different assignments.
By the end, you’ll be able to alter table schemas, create stored procedures, construct advanced queries, and work with text in databases using various techniques.
Study this RDBMS with leading experts
The University of Michigan is a highly-respected institution, with a long history of providing exceptional courses as well as academic support.
This course continues the University’s high standards, and is also convened by programming experts who understand the historical significance of PostgreSQL.
Not only will you learn and practice important aspects of the SQL, but you’ll also gain insights into the key players and innovations that brought about the game-changing SQL standard.
