Course objectives
The aim of the course is to analyze a given problem in the field of data processing, implement a solution to the problem, and run performance tests. The implementation requires the use of a contemporary database system, i.e. knowledge of SQL, and any programming language.
Learning outcomes
Upon completion of the course the student will be able to: - use a database storage system; - study and use advanced data processing techniques; - design and implement application performance tests.
  • A presentation of ideas in the tasks to be solved. Overview of approaches to optimizing SQL queries.
  • Assignment and solution of specific tasks - typically within two weeks per task.
  • Continuous evaluation during the solution period (approximately two times) with the possibility of getting extra points in the final solution ranking.
  • Corrections to solutions based on feedback after the submission deadline - typically within one week.
  • Consultation on assignments during class time.
  • Evaluation of all solutions (overall ranking) and announcement of the best ones.
Teaching methods
Introductory presentation of the concept of the course, synchronous consultations during seminars, and independent solving of assigned tasks.
Assessment methods
Credit will be awarded based on the successful completion of all assignments. Each assignment must be completed 100%. Assignments have interim checks before the due date and up to two corrections after the due date. Attendance at the opening and closing seminars.
