Speaking at Charleston PASS on May 18, 2017

During the day of the 18th I’ll be at the Syntax Code and Craft Conference in Charleston, SC. That evening I’m stopping by Charleston PASS to visit and give a presentation.

Register for Charleston PASS’ May 18th Meeting

I’m stepping away from my comfort zone of security and presenting on an important topic I see getting less and less attention nowadays: data modeling.


Introduction to Data Modeling

Improperly built bridges and buildings fail and collapse. Improperly built database do, too. Unfortunately, database design is becoming a lost art, leading to issues with both performance and data integrity. In this presentation we’ll look at the keys to proper database design. We’ll start with requirements gathering. Then we’ll tackle the logical design of the database. We’ll consider entities, domains, relationships, and proper normalization. Finally, we’ll move on to discussing how to implement our design, specifically using SQL Server.


I hope to see you there!
