This coming spring semester (Spring 2012) I am going to deliver in MTA a course that teaches how to analyse, design and develop the code running on the server side for working with a database.
The course includes the following main topics:
No SQL Databases
Objects Relationship Mapping
Most of the slides and the other training material of this course can be found at www.abelski.com. The material in this web site is available for free personal and academic usage.
The official syllabus can be found at http://www.lifemichael.com/mta/2012_02_sql.pdf.
