In this course, we will introduce you to some common types of databases. Different data problems can be solved in a wide variety of ways, which is why so many different types of databases exist. After learning about a few different types of databases, you’ll be ready to explore specific implementations further.
During this course, I’ll introduce you to the following:
- SQL databases
- Key-value databases
- Graph databases
This course is for novice:
- Software engineers
- Data engineers
- DevOps engineers
- Site reliability engineers
- You should have at least a conceptual understanding of programming and be comfortable with data structures, data types, etc.
Hello, and welcome! My name is Ben Lambert, and I’ll be your instructor for this course.
A bit about me, I started developing software before the modern cloud existed. And during that time I’ve been fortunate enough to work on a wide variety of projects. Projects spanning programming languages, operating systems, and cloud platforms.
Through this course, I’m hoping to share some of the lessons I’ve learned during that time. Should you want to ask me a specific question, you can do that with the contact details on screen.
You can also reach support by using the email address: email@example.com. And one of our cloud experts will reply.
