The aim of this course is to clarify the process of database design according to different models, as well as design of interfaces and background applications that will make use of the created database. Students will be introduced to various development environments used in database design, depending on the database model. Students will be introduced to the state-of-the-art tools for rapid development of upgradable databases of high quality, by using a relational model and the latest NoSQL databases.
