Building upon the skills mastered in PB Tech's popular Introduction to SQL and Database Design course, Advanced SQL and Database Programming teaches the development techniques needed to take full advantage of powerful and flexible data-driven applications. We'll turn from the prior course's concern with data modeling and database design to how to use data in extensive, enterprise-class databases. Again, we will be using MySQL as the basis for the examples and exercises.

Course Overview

By the end of the class students will be able to:

  • Query data simultaneously from multiple, related tables
  • Design subqueries and correlated subqueries
  • Use unions to combine queries into a single result set
  • Performance-tune queries
  • Implement transactions
  • Execute triggers
  • Create and execute stored procedures
  • Handle error conditions
