The basics, at least. We haven't gotten into any actual programming or creation yet, but I'm doing really well on my homework. I didn't think I was getting it that well, because sometimes the questions are vague and there's no answer key to check against. It seems like I'm guessing at times.
But I'm glad. Knowing how a database works will help me in the future if this web development dream of mine comes true. Maybe I should say when it comes true.
I just have a find a place to use the skill. That part I haven't figured out yet.
Back in Columbus, I thought about doing the DBA program so I could get a job, then learn web development on the side, since the program could be finished in about a year. That was when they were on the quarter system. Ohio switched to semesters recently, I think, and I'm not there anymore. Still, it's tempting. Except for taking the certification exam. And I'm a little worried it might suck up my time. It would be good experience for learning back end development, though. From some of the podcasts I've listened to, a lot of developers don't get databases that well. I guess since a lot of them are coming out of coding camps, they only get the basics and don't get enough time for it to sink in.
I think I might take the second course if I find things are going well. I might have to because the course offerings are so thin.
The web server class is a big ugh for me right now.
But yep, database class is going well. May it continue that way.
