What is a database? A database is a collection of data stored in a format that makes it secure and easy to retrieve and manage. It is the security and management efficiency that makes database products attractive. There are two kinds of database systems: Relational and NoSQL.
Relational Database Management System(RDBMS) stores data in a database component called Table in ROWS and COLUMNS. One or more tables are usually related together, hence the name relational. Example includes MySQL, SQL Server, Oracle etc.

NoSQL database systems on the other hand store data in documents not tables, and do not use the SQL language for data administration. Examples include MongoDB, Cassandra, Redis etc.

This course is all about RDBMS and SQL. And we will be using the MySQL RDBMS product. Please note that the SQL language is 95% the same on all RDBMS products, with minor syntactical differences. Meaning that the SQL we will learn with MySQL in this course will be applicable to other RDBMS products like SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, etc.

Apart from tables, database contains a few components that are also very important. These include views, functions, stored procedures, and triggers. Mastering these components puts you in control of database design and administration. In this course, we will do all these more !!

After this course, you will have all it takes to take your first job as a database designer and administrator. Either managing a database to generate various reports for different levels of decision-makers or working with software developers to handle all the database-specific activities like tables relationships modeling, data-seeding, indexing, data partitioning for pre-production/staging QA testing, or user account security for the software applications under development. Database administrators are 'kings' in any enterprise.
