There is much more to learn about relational databases. Continue on with "Database Foundations: Core Concepts," or move into a DBMS specific course such as "Access 2016 Essential Training."
- [Adam] I want to thank you for joining me…in learning relational databases,…and wanted to leave you with a few parting resources…to help continue your exploration…of the database development process.…First, to continue learning about relational databases…and to start working with them in Sequel Server,…check out my four part series on database foundations,…starting with core concepts.…I also have a short QuickStart course…that will get you up to speed quickly in Sequel Server,…called learn Sequel Server 2016.…For those of you looking to implement your plan…in a smaller database,…say for a small business or a personal project,…take a look at some of the courses…on desktop database systems,…like my Access 2016 essential training,…or one of the several courses on FileMaker Pro,…such as relational database design…with Chris Ibalite.…
So thanks again for joining me.…Have a great day.…
