EDAF75 - Database Technology


2018-01-15: The Tuesday lectures will be held in V:C (that information was conspicuously missing in TimeEdit up until today).

2018-01-08: During spring 2018, the course website will be on Moodle, those who have signed up for the course in LADOK will receive an email a couple of days before the course starts, with instructions on how to register for the course. Once they've registered, they will receive an enrollment key for the Moodle website.

2017-12-09: For purely technical reasons, this course has been given a new course code, EDAF75 (it used to be EDA216), but the formal course description (see right) has not changed.

The course will start on January 16, 2018 - you can find the schedule in TimeEdit. Attendance will not be required for the first lecture, but you will have to register for the course somehow (exactly how that will be done hasn't  been decided yet, information on how to do it will be presented on this site a few days before the course starts).

2016-12-05: According to the formal course description (see link to the right), the course is given in Swedish, and the lectures will indeed be in Swedish, but the material on this web site, and on the lecture slides, will be in English. You can send questions in either Swedish or English.
