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.
