I have a B.S in Finance from UT at Arlington, TX.
I have nearly twenty years of experience in IT. Of that I have been a data modeler for eight years. During that time I have worked closely with application teams to develop front end applications and with BI teams to design data marts and data warehouses.
I also currently write a database column for a development magazine that is published six times a year.
Experience: 8 years
Databases are more than just someplace to dump the data for an application.
How you design a database is every bit as important as how you write the code.
In this lesson we will cover what is data modeling, its history, and why it is important as well as a brief overview of the first three normal forms.
