Relational Database Design for Utter Newbies

 

Presenter: Kevin Kline, Quest Software

 

Session 21: 20:00 GMT on September 16

 

Session Details

Designing a database isn’t hard work. But investing a little time and effort early will yield big benefits by providing a database that is self-documenting, that is easy to maintain and alter, and that provides high-quality data to its users. This level-100 session will use extensive examples and a real-world use case to teach you:


• How to approach a new database design project
• How to normalize a relational database up to Third Normal Form (3NF)
• How to read an Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) or create your own
• How to transform a design into a real database

 

This is a great session for developers who’ve never undertaken a database design project themselves, administrators who focus on operations, and for other IT professionals who are interested in databases.
