MySQL basic course

Are you working in a PHP environment with a relational database? Do you want to be able to edit the data in it or even change the entire structure? Do you find it annoying to be constantly dependent on others to make the right queries for your reports? The MySQL course gives you insight into the structure and operation of a relational database. This helps you to understand how you can get access to the data it contains. You learn how to make powerful MySQL queries that allow you to quickly and efficiently retrieve data from the most complex datasets and, if necessary, edit it.

MySQL is the most widely used programme in the world for managing relational databases. It is open source and therefore accessible to everyone. Because MySQL focuses on speed and convenience, it is particularly suitable for creating dynamic websites and simple web applications.

In today's business world, everything revolves around information. Organisations collect more and more data, but often hardly know what they can do with it. After following the MySQL course, you will know. You can manage the database and/or set up valuable reports, statistics or dashboards. This gives you an enormous advantage on the labour market.

  • Introduction to relational database design.
    This covers the basics: tables, columns and fields, primary and foreign keys, normalisation etc...
