Databases are incredibly prevalent. This technology is used by most people every day if not every hour. Databases reside behind a huge fraction of websites; they are a crucial component of telecommunications systems, banking systems, video games, and just about any other software system or electronic device that maintains some amount of persistent information.

This course follows a practical perspective: it provides basic knowledge of conceptual modeling of data, by using a graphical language (UML), in order to design simple databases. Secondly, from the conceptual model we will see how to design and implement concretely a database using common database management systems and how to extract knowledge by querying the database. We plan the course so that is suitable also for people without programming experience.


-UML class diagrams
-Relational data model
