This presentation will cover the qualities of relational databases and the software packages called relational database management systems (RDBMS). 

You will learn how data is organized into "relations" and how this facilitates clean, robust data management. 

Additionally you will learn some of the qualities of SQL, the computer query language that is used to create, edit, and manage RDBMS. We have several examples with visual charts and working SQL statements and queries.
