[Advanced Databases]: New instructions Advanced DB mini practicum

Thursday, September 20th, 2007, posted by Djoerd Hiemstra

Some students reported trouble logging in on the practicum machine outhouse. These problems occur because the faculty is replacing NIS by some other system to manage network accounts (and student accounts are the last ones to make the transfer). If you have difficulties logging in, please follow the new instructions in the practicum manual.

[Advanced Databases]: Welcome to Advanced Database Systems

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2007, posted by Djoerd Hiemstra

Welcome to ADS! This course will have a little bit of everything: traditional lectures, home work assignments (on a voluntary basis), a small (half a day) practicum assignment, a small project, and a written exam. You are going to learn how relational databases work in practice: what happens inside the system when an SQL query is executed? In the 2nd part of the course, we are going to discuss applications for which relational databases do not provide a perfect solution: object-oriented data, semi-structured data, distributed data and online analytical processing. See you in September,
