Advanced Database Administration

New York University (NYU) via edX

Overview

This is the 3rd course in the intermediate, undergraduate-level offering that makes up the larger Introduction to Databases MicroBachelors Program. We recommend taking them in order, unless you have a background in these areas already and feel comfortable skipping ahead.

  1. Introduction to Databases
  2. Advanced Database Queries
  3. Advanced Database Administration

These topics build upon the learnings that are taught in the introductory-level Computer Science Fundamentals MicroBachelors program, offered by the same instructor.

This course is a continuation of the basic concepts, organization, and implementation models taught in the Introduction to Databases and Advanced Database Queries courses. Among the topics covered are the development of objects in the database such as databases, tables, indexes, views, stored procedures and functions. Data Definition Language (DDL) is a subset of SQL that is used by database administrators to create and maintain these objects in the database. Students gain a thorough understanding of the DDL syntax and the use cases for each object type. Database development and administration skills are required in most Information Technology, Software Engineering, Cybersecurity, and Computer Science jobs. The course utilizes the open-source relational database MySQL. MySQL and it's open-source fork MariaDB are used in millions of web apps to persist the application data and provide query processing. Applied labs expand on the lectures to provide students with hands-on experience with a relational database management system (DBMS) and structured query language (SQL).

If you successfully complete all the courses within the program, with a passing grade of 70% or better via the verified (paid) track, you’ll not only receive a certificate highlighting your achievement, but also have the option to collect real college credit (included in the price!) that you can count towards a pursuit of a bachelor’s degree.
