In this course, learners discover the role played by databases in the FSD (full stack development) process. The 14-video course explores differences between relational and non-relational databases and the advantages associated with each type; how to install and configure the MySQL, PostgresSQL, and MongoDB database systems; and how these systems are used in both the test and live environments of FSD development. Learn how to recognize best practices associated with the design of database systems in the FSD development process. You will then examine how to download, install, and configure the MySQL relational database system for use in FSD development. Then move on to the installation and configuration of the PostgreSQL, MongoDB NoSQL, and SQL Server relational database systems for use in FSD development. Learners will examine components required in both a test and live environment for FSD development, and the requirements of the FSD test environment and specific challenges. Finally, you will learn about the requirements of the FSD production environment and specific challenges.
