Regarding when to approach the instructor or TAs with
questions outside of class, please keep in mind the following. We are
always willing and eager to answer your questions, and would like you
to master the topics covered in a timely manner. There are different
venues for bringing questions outside the lecture hours: (a) during
office hours, (b) over email explaining your problem, (c) trying to
set up an appointment or (d) dropping by their office. Of this (d)
might not be very useful if the instructor or TA is not available or
in another meeting. However, if you have any problem whatsoever, do
NOT hesitate to approach the instructor or the TAs.
Database systems are a critical component of today's software systems.
This second course in database systems concentrates on the study of the
internals of such database management systems. That is, we will look
"under the hood" to learn about the key techniques and technologies
within database systems. The knowledge gained should be useful not
only for building a variety of types of software systems that have to
handle data of large volumes, but also for most effectively using a
commercial DBMS system.
