Brian Scarbeau Insights from a seasoned Computer Science Trainer

Tomorrow I'll be introducing databases to my students. This will be the first time for all of them to learn this and several of my students have already created a database and tables with Webmatrix and they told me that it was easy to learn. There is a great deal of new terminology that they need to learn. Words like record, field, table will be new.

This is the database that they will create:

BandDatabase Database

For some of the future site features we will create, you will use the BandDatabase.mdb that you copied into your C:\WebMatrix directory. It is an Access database that has been populated with data. It has the following tables:

  •  Albums
  •  AlbumTracks
  •  ArtistJournal
  •  Artists
  •  FanJournal (defined but empty of data)
  •  Fans (you will define and add records to this table)
  •  Tours

I'm hoping that my students realize how important it is for a database to be accurate and how important a database is to run a business.

Future lessons will use webcontrols to view the database and then they will create search buttons as well.
