While the table would eventually exist as HTML in the client (browser), the construction of it would generally be done from a database at the server side using code written in something like JavaScript, Ruby, C++, Python, etc. And each language would usually have multiple choices for methods of accessing databases.

There are courses here for all of these, but your choice may be influenced by prior experience and/or aspects of your intended final application.
