We introduce database systems and motivate the database approach as a mechanism for modeling the real world. We cover the relational model, logical database design, query languages, and other database concepts, including query optimization, concurrency control, transaction management, and log based crash recovery. Distributed and Web database architectures are also discussed.
Office hours will be held in AVW 4172. We will be using a ticket-based system for ordering and tracking office hours (more details later).
Piazza is the preferred way to get help, whether from the instructor, TAs, or other students.
Only used for reading quizzes (see schedule) and project uploads. Messages send to keleher on ELMS will not be read.
