I wanted to expand my understanding of database topics and the Stanford course delivered with the following subject areas:
Relational DatabasesI felt comforable with most topics as they were not new to me. But a couple of the topics, Relational Algebra and Relational Design Theory, really taxed my brain.
Relational Design Theory
Unified Modeling Language
Constraints and Triggers
Recursion in SQL
On-Line Analytical Processing
The course offered lots of basic info and also "challenge" level info for advanced learning.
All in all, a great course. I'm glad I forced myself to tackle some new topics.
