MySQL for Developers

MySQL for Developers Courseware (AMS-DB124)

MySQL for Developers will be useful for anyone who wants to truly master SQL using MySQL. The course covers relational database design, implementation of a database design, and the skills necessary to use a MySQL database as a backend to an application. Along with SQL query skills, the attendee will also learn about query optimization and importing and exporting data. 

Hands-on activities are included designed to reinforce the content delivered in the course. A step-by-step document is provided to guide in the creation of a  Windows 10 VM configured to support the hands-on activities. A cloud-based VM is also available for the attendees to use, which can be purchased separately.
