In this course you will interpret the components of a relational data model, convert that model into a relational database, and then test the database design. The process of database design begins with requirements analysis to determine who will use the new database and how it will be used. The results of the detailed analysis are recorded in an Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD), which documents entities and their attributes, along with the relationships between entities. The ERD (logical design) is then converted into the Relational Model, which serves as the blueprint for the actual creation of a database in a database management system. By the end of this course, you will have used a blueprint—a Relational Model—to create a database using SQLiteStudio. In addition, you will have developed test data and queries to validate the database design represented by the Relational Model. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
