Dr. Stephen Krebsbach introduces us to the course. This is a capstone course. Interestingly, this course is a theoretical response to the practical nature of the preceding database courses in this track. We’re going to talk about the why.

Want to know how advanced we are? We’re starting in Chapter 17. :-)

Get your money’s worth: ask questions! Read the book! Communicate!

First assignment: read Chapters 17-19, watch the videos for each chapter, and come up with good questions for next class period! Watch for homework assignment, probably coming out next week.

And remember: the videos were recorded last year: ignore any references to dates, other assignments, etc.! Admin info will come by e-mail, not video!
