About This Course
This four-week course from the University of Michigan forms part of the series on Python and PostgreSQL and directly follows the introductory course on database design and basic SQL.
You’ll learn intermediate PostgreSQL concepts, building on the foundational knowledge of the previous course.
By the end, you’ll be able to use the PostgreSQL RDBMS to create efficient, robust databases for all your Python programming projects.
Level up your PostgreSQL abilities
You’ll tap into the fundamentals that you already know about this RDBMS as you learn to utilise SQL commands to edit tables in PostgreSQL databases and to produce normalised tables from CSV files.
You’ll also be guided on inserting data into a database, creating stored procedures, identifying hashtag algorithms, and constructing regular expressions to select rows that match a pattern.
Get first-hand experience with SQL commands
Like the other courses in this series, you’ll be able to practice the concepts and skills that you’re learning with engaging assignments.
The combination of theory and hands-on training means you can understand and then apply the material, preparing you for whatever real-life work situation you find yourself in.
