Introduction to examples

The power of combining schema, indexing, and querying

As we near the end of our course, it's essential to look back at all that we've learned and see how we can apply it to real-world applications. In this section, we will take a deeper dive into how schema, indexing, and querying work together to create efficient and powerful databases.

Putting it all together

In previous sections, we've covered schema, indexing, and querying in detail. But now is the time to see the big picture and comprehend how all these elements work together. As a result, we will go over a variety of examples that application developers might encounter in their everyday work.

Our objective here is to provide you with a package of knowledge that you can use in your own applications to create databases that perform well.

About this lesson

This section is all about practical examples that combine everything we've learned up to this point.
