Database Development & Administration with SQL

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.

Students' Testimonials

I've always been interested in learning full stack web development but always struggled with understanding a lot of the concepts on my own whenever i take online courses; until i enrolled for the Web Application & APIs Development with Python/Django course at Anchorsoft Academy.

Concepts were properly broken down in a way that is very easy for everyone including absolute beginners like myself to understand. It is indeed a great value for money as this program has opened a lot of new opportunities for me.

Anchorsoft academy has a well structured curriculum that will take you from zero to mastery. I never really gained a good grasp of the fundamentals of software development (CSS, Python, API's) despite taking several online courses until I joined Anchorsoft, I am now fully confident in my abilities to build web applications.

Anchorsoft is highly recommend if you're seeking out a place to start or gain mastery of software development.
