Course description

Django Application Development with SQL and Databases

The essential building blocks of application development include accessing, processing, and presenting data. With vast amounts of data stored in various databases, on the cloud or on-premises, developers will use a language like SQL.

This course introduces you to the basics of SQL, a simple and powerful programming language for querying and managing data, and the fundamentals of cloud databases. You will discover Object-Relational Mapping (ORM), and how to use Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) languages to work with databases.

You will be introduced to Django, a fast and simple open source web framework used by developers to simplify their work. You will learn how Django models, views and templates work together to present data on a website and will use Django’s powerful admin site functionality to manage site content. And you will discover Bootstrap, a free and open-source web front-end framework.

As a final project, you will gain hands-on practical experience developing and deploying a full-stack Django web application on the cloud.
