Course Description

This two day intensive course will take students through all the phases involved in developing applications on relational databases. The course uses a combination of lectures and immediate hands-on labs on a real-world project.

After a brief introduction to fundamental database concepts, students will learn how to analyze database application requirements and identify the major data structures and processes that must be supported. Students will learn how to use the Extended Entity-Relationship Model to specify the data structures and how to design normalized database tables for the data structures.

After an introduction to SQL, students will immediately use it to design the processes of the application on the relational database tables and will practice their skills using phpMyAdmin. A follow-on course will teach them how to implement database driven Web applications using PHP and MySQL.
