If you want to build databases that are robust, flexible, and accurate, you have to come to grips with design theory. But this theory is riddled with difficult terms and concepts that don’t seem to have much to do with design in practice. In this two-day master class, renowned expert C.J. Date bridges the gap by introducing design theory in ways practitioners can understand. This painless introduction to design theory is for database professionals familiar with the relational model.
