What I will be able to do after the course?

There is a database behind every SaaS application you use. Here are some examples of things you can do with databases:

  • Automate workflow steps based on database triggers
  • Build custom no-code databases to leverage your data
  • Build custom internal tools
  • Unify data across different SaaS tools
  • ... and many more!
Can I take this course while working full-time?

Yes, this course is fully asynchronous, so you can learn at your own pace.

However, don't expect it to be a passive experience where you only watch videos and read presentations! More than half of the content of this course is practical, with:

  • Demos: quick recordings where we show you concrete examples applying technical concepts from the course
  • Tutorials: guided exercises with step-by-step instructions to reproduce use cases
  • Exercises: advanced use cases to build on your own with video correction

Combining theory and practice ensures you reach your goal: to apply what you learn and build with databases.

I'm a beginner. Is this course for me?

This course is suited for beginners with no coding knowledge and no prior experience with databases.

However, this course isn't just an introduction to databases - we cover everything a qualified automation specialist should know about the topic. If you are an operator looking to acquire solid database skills, you won't need another course.

Can I expense this course?

This course teaches technical concepts that can help you increase your productivity at work and can be expensed as a training with your company.

To help you doing this, we've prepared a few slides that you can present to your manager to show them the benefits they'd get if you join this cohort. Feel free to contact us to get the presentation and share internally within your organisation.

What about refunds?

If for some reason, the course was not what you expected, we have a money back guarantee. We will refund you - no questions asked - as long as you let us know within 7 days.
