Course Information

Course Overview
This course will help participants to design and develop databases. It starts by explaining basic concepts about the database, followed by the methodologies and steps about database design that will be explained by going though conceptual, logical and physical designs. Even though database design might seem confusing and complex, this course will provide you with our secret easy, steps-by-steps rules that were developed and tested throughout many years. Design will be followed by learning implementation techniques. Participants will be shown how to install the PostgreSQL database management system. After that, they will be shown how to develop/build the designed database practically using the SQL language. This course is prepared with many real-life examples and case studies to be used in the explanation. At the same time, there will be a lot of practical exercises and small projects to help in strengthening the understanding of the concepts.
