Webcast: Data Modeling Scenarios and Best Practices

, 2018-12-28

On January 17, 2019, I will be giving a webcast with MSSQLTips on data modeling best practices. It’s scheduled for 3 PM EST (8 PM UTC). Here’s the link to register:

Register for Data Modeling Scenarios and Best Practices (free)

Here’s what I’ll be talking about:

In this session we’ll look at typical data models used for relational databases whether for transactional systems or warehousing solutions. We’ll also consider cases where non-relational solutions provide a better option and how we ultimately bring that back into a relational model for reporting and analysis. As a result, we’ll look at the power of the Entity-Relationship model along with best practices for normalization. We’ll also cover when denormalization makes sense, which is often the case in warehousing models like with star and snowflake schema.

If there are specific scenarios you want me to cover, drop me a line at kbriankelley {at} acm {dot} org and I will see what I can fit into the talk. Hope to see you there!

Speaking at Community Events - More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events - Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I've got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
