In this course, you’ll learn about the SQL database management system PostgreSQL and what differentiates it from SQLite. You’ll learn about proper data types for your data and why they’re important. You’ll also install PostgreSQL on your own machine and learn how to work with psycopg2, a Python database API for PostgreSQL that allows you to interact with PostgreSQL databases using Python.
Best of all, you’ll learn by doing — you’ll practice and get feedback directly in the browser. At the end of the course, you’ll complete a project that asks you to work on a real-life example — storing storm data in a PostgreSQL database.
