Database Design Fundamentals - Eric Freeman

In this session we will go over key elements included in a strong database design. Database design can be responsible for the success or failure of a project. While designing a database, it is important to understand both the current business needs as well as anticipate what may be necessary in the future. First, we will go over database design fundamentals which include normalization, keys, and relationships. Next, we will compare easy and difficult to work with database designs (What works? What does not work?). Finally, we will conclude by exploring a more complex model designed to handle Census American Community Survey data.

Eric Freeman works as a Senior Business Intelligence Architect at John Burns Real Estate Consulting. He has over 15 years of experience working on Microsoft SQL Server and holds a MCTS in Business Intelligence with a strong emphasis on Performance Tuning, ETL and Data Warehousing. Former President of the Sacramento SQL Server User Group, and actively speaks at SQL Server events.
