Using Relational Databases

Understanding how databases function and why they are important is key to doing much of the project work we do in the ADHC. Steven Turner of Web Services gave an intro workshop this week: “Using Relational Databases for Digital Research.” He covered some basics about what relational databases are, how they work, and why they are important for organizing data and building web-based projects. Here are resources from the workshop: video, slides, and handout of useful resources. Thanks, Steve!

One thought on “Using Relational Databases

  1. Thanks for posting all this. Steve’s presentation was really helpful! I feel like I’ve got a much better grasp on the basic concepts now and the vocabulary to go forward, learn more, and tackle building a database at some point without all the fear that the very word “database” instilled before. Great job!
