  • Temporal Tables - Part 3 - Syncing Multiple Modifications

    Back last June, I started this series on temporal tables, and in my head, I had enough information to make an educated set of examples on how to use them.

  • Chapter 7–Enforced Data Protection

    As the book progresses, I find myself veering from the original stated outline quite a bit, because as I teach about this more (and I am teaching a daylong db design class in August at… shameless plug, but it is on topic :) I start to find that a given order works better. Originally I had slated myself to talk more ...

  • Normalization and How to Know When You Are Done… The short version…

    A while back, I was working on a short article about Normalization for a book that never got published (admittedly I wasn’t getting paid for the article, and it wasn’t for charity, so I wasn’t that broken up over it.)  The task at hand was to, in 2 pages or less, describe the process of normalization and help you to know when you have ...

  • Blog (Durnit!)

    Introduction The past few days I've read several blurbs from folks expressing why they don't blog. The reasons range from ''I have nothing interesting to say'' to ''I don't know enough'' to ''Everything I want to write about has been blogged already.'' Pfffft (to quote @RachelAppel) Come on. Seriously? If you think, you can blog. I Have ...
