Essential SQL Data Model and Relational Database Design

What you’ll learn

Create conceptual database model based upon user requirements to depict relationships between business entities.
Diagram a relational database design with entity–relationship diagrams (ERDs) using crow’s foot notation to enforce referential integrity.
Evaluate tables for compliance to third normal form and perform normalization procedures on noncompliant tables.
Restructure spreadsheet like data into good database form.
Design and implement relational databases using tables, keys, relationships, and SQL commands in MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQL Server to meet user requirements.
Be able to express and communication database design concepts with others.
Know the reasons why a relational database is organized into many separate tables.

Essential SQL Data Model and Relational Database Design


No programming experience is needed.
No prior knowledge of MySQL, SQLServer, PostgreSQL or Oracle is required!
Appreciate basic database concepts such as knowing about columns, rows, and tables.
Interest in a class hyper-focused on database design — nothing else!


This course is perfect if you’re looking for entry-level course to learn relational database table design.  Its singular purpose is to teach you relational database logical design using simple to understand English.Join me as we work through Lou’s, the owner of several pizza shops, to design and create a database he can use to track is business.In this Course you will Learn to:Create a conceptual data model based on Lou’s Pizza Shops’ requirements.Use ER (Entity-Relationship) diagrams to design database tables and relationship between one another.Appreciate and design around data modification anomalies.Identify a properly formed database table.Answer common interview questions related to normalization (huge).Spot a poorly designed table.Communicate with others about table design.Finally understand those confounding normalization rules!Identify database normalization issues within our design and know how to fix them.Use an ERD (Entity Relationship Diagram) to create database scripts.Nothing is worse thanBeing excited to learn something new but not knowing where to start.Wasting time learning the wrong features.Being overwhelmed with options and not know which to use.Imagine Having…Knowledge – Knowing how to quickly understand database design to take your SQL to the next level.Confidence – Feeling good that you’re on the right track.Accomplishment – Having a sense of accomplishment that you’ve learned something most cannot.Fun – Having fun learning databases!By the time you’ve completed this course you’ll be able to design and implement relational databases using tables, keys, relationships, and SQL commands in MySQL, PostgresSQL, and SQL Server to meet user and operational needs.
