Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Want to learn about databases without the tedium? With its unique combination of Japanese-style comics and serious educational content, The Manga Guide to Databases is just the book for you.

Princess Ruruna is stressed out. With the king and queen away, she has to manage the Kingdom of Kod's humongous fruit-selling empire. Overseas departments, scads of inventory, conflicting prices, and so many customers! It's all such a confusing mess. But a mysterious book and a helpful fairy promise to solve her organizational problems-with the practical magic of databases.

In The Manga Guide to Databases, Tico the fairy teaches the Princess how to simplify her data management. We follow along as they design a relational database, understand the entity-relationship model, perform basic database operations, and delve into more advanced topics. Once the Princess is familiar with transactions and basic SQL statements, she can keep her data timely and accurate for the entire kingdom. Finally, Tico explains ways to make the database more efficient and secure, and they discuss methods for concurrency and replication.

Examples and exercises (with answer keys) help you learn, and an appendix of frequently used SQL statements gives the tools you need to create and maintain full-featured databases.

(Of course, it wouldn't be a royal kingdom without some drama, so read on to find out who gets the girl-the arrogant prince or the humble servant.)

This EduManga book is a translation of a bestselling series in Japan, co-published with Ohmsha, Ltd., of Tokyo, Japan.

Synopsis:

The Manga Guide to Databases capitalizes on the international manga phenomenon. This first in a series of EduManga titles from No Starch Press (co-published with Ohmsha, Ltd. of Japan) uses manga to teach the reader about databases. Rather than learning from a dry textbook, readers follow the animated adventures of Tico the Database Fairy (picture an anime Tinkerbell) as she interacts with a colorful cast of characters. Combining technical information with fun stories and illustration, the book covers a thorough array of foundational database knowledge including relational databases, database design, E-R models, SQL, operations, and more. Other titles in the series will cover topics like statistics, electricity, and physics.
