Mastering Database Management with Knex.js and PostgreSQL
What you'll learn
- Understand and set up a development environment for Knexjs and PostgreSQL
- Master database migrations and seeding
- Perform advanced CRUD and join operations using Knexjs
- Implement transactions and utilize the Query Builder
- Basic understanding of programming concepts: Students should have a fundamental understanding of programming concepts such as variables, functions, loops, and conditionals.
- Experience with relational databases and SQL: Students should have a basic understanding of relational database concepts, such as tables, columns, rows, and keys. Additionally, they should be familiar with SQL and its basic operations, such as SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE.
- Basic knowledge of TypeScript (optional, but recommended): Although not mandatory, a basic understanding of TypeScript and its features, such as interfaces and types, can be helpful, as the course includes a section on TypeScript interfaces.
Throughout the course, you will learn how to set up your development environment, gaining hands-on experience in installing and configuring the necessary tools and libraries for Knex.js and PostgreSQL. You will become proficient in creating and managing database migrations and seeds, allowing you to maintain and update your database structure and initial data with ease.
You will dive deep into the world of CRUD (Create, Read, Update, and Delete) operations, mastering the process of interacting with PostgreSQL databases using Knex.js. Additionally, you will learn how to perform advanced join operations to extract relevant data from multiple related tables, helping you unlock the full potential of relational databases.
The course also covers crucial concepts such as transactions, ensuring data integrity and consistency when performing multiple related operations, and the Knex.js Query Builder, enabling you to construct dynamic, reusable, and maintainable SQL queries.
With a dedicated section on TypeScript interfaces, you will gain a strong foundation in integrating TypeScript with your database-driven applications, enhancing their scalability and maintainability.
By the end of this course, you will have acquired the skills and knowledge needed to create, optimize, and manage modern database-driven applications using Knex.js and PostgreSQL. With practical examples, hands-on exercises, and expert guidance, this course will empower you to take your database management skills to the next level.
Who this course is for:
