Which topic/lecture in this course wasyour favorite and why?~Question Type: Short Answer~contributed by Sherriff, Mark (mss2x)Results for C S-462-0001, Sherriff, MarkTotal Individual Answers28 See below for Individual ResultsSQLSQL injections, better understanding of the architecture and why one needs to know it.B+-trees and Hashing - I like data structures and the lecture did a good job of explaining both topicsand piqued my interest in these areas.SQL Injection by farDatabase security/hacking because it was fun and informative.Security, because we actually did something hands on.SQL injection attack. It was fun trying to figure out how to hack into a database system.SQL Injection, as we went beyond just the concepts and actually both watched it being performed inreal life and tried it out ourselvesSQL injection attacks. Even though I sucked at making the attacks, it was good to emphasizesecurity.My favorite was the E-R diagrams and model because it allowed me to connect an abstract scenariointo a solid DB designSQL injection attacks, because we got to try it ourselves!The lecture on security, allowing the students to attempt injection attacks on an unsecured database,was very enjoyable. Not only did we learn the value of security, but we realized the venues of attacksused by hackers.I just liked working with SQL statements, mostly because it made sense within the context of the classand I saw and immediate use for it as a programmer.E-R diagrams, functional dependencies,and normal forms. The things one needs to know to properlydesign a database.I really liked the lectures on PHP and documentation. I thought they were very helpful tounderstanding parts of database and computer science that I was lacking in.SQL Injection - I like hacking.Page 1 of 7The information in this document is private and confidential. Please handle accordingly.C S 462-0001 Database Systems - Fall 2008~ QUESTIONS AND DETAILS ~ ~ ANSWER MATRICES ~Functional dependencies, relational algebra. They were theoretical and I could see using them invarious other forms in other fields.I enjoyed most the schema creation and ER diagrams as I enjoyed the puzzle/challenge of coming upwith the most straightforward/efficient design. My favorite lecture was the one where we debated anew technology (XML for databases) - I think it would be cool if something we discussed in classcame up later at a job and I would be able to argue for/against it.php because it is very practicalI enjoyed the information on database security because it is a very important topic and good to learnabout different techniquesSQL, because I had never worked with it before and had been wanting to learn how to do it for awhile.Security...because I actually need to know that later..Acid. Just kidding. Well, the right type of ACID: Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, and Durability. Itsounds funny.Security - it was something completely new to me, and extremely important in database systems.security was interesting. I also liked the first half of the semester er-modeling/sql.All of it? The hack-the-server day was awesome, and made my CS friends from other collegesopenly wish they had professors that awesome.db security.....injection attacks fascinated melollers. It's hard to say. Truth be told, databases are not inherently engaging. I made point to be inevery class I could be in because they were well presented and I felt that I took a lot from themafterwards.4. Which topic/lecture in this class doyou think you will find the most usefulin the future?~Question Type: Short Answer~contributed by Sherriff, Mark (mss2x)Results for C S-462-0001, Sherriff, MarkTotal Individual Answers28 See below for Individual ResultsSQLSQLMy developed skills with PHP and HTML will help me in any class or job I am interested in in thefuture.The project. Developing a PHP/MySQl system.Database Security.PHPDatabase SecurityDatabase SecurityThe project in and of itself will be extremely valuable in the futureNone; not going into Computing as a career.The php/jsp was probably most useful, or marketable - that kind of stuff came up a lot in interviewsThe material covered in the first portion of the class, on Entity-Relationship Diagrams, MySQL syntax,and the nature and value of databases, will be the most useful. I have already used this informationmultiple times outside of class for reasons including interviews.Normal FormsSecurityInjection attacks. :P Also, SQL/php.security.mySQL and PHPPage 2 of 7The information in this document is private and confidential. Please handle accordingly.C S 462-0001 Database Systems - Fall 2008~ QUESTIONS AND DETAILS ~ ~ ANSWER MATRICES ~I think most lectures are useful. I have been to job interviews that asked me what is normalization andrelational database.SQL and securityer diagramssecurity lecturesOnce again SQL statements.SQL because it enabled students with practice as opposed to theory.I think the use of SQL will be very helpful.SQL InjectionI think the most practical/worthwhile topic was covering from beginning to end the design of adatabase
