At this meetup event, we will learn how to take real-world business requirements and turn them into a working relational data model.
First, we will have a presentation on basic relational data modeling concepts, such entities, relationships, cardinality, and normalization rules. Then we will have a collaborative discussion where everybody will participate in creating an actual data model for a fictional online bookstore!
The concepts you learn here can easily translate to any real-world data modeling tasks you might come across as a database professional.
If you are new to databases, you won't want to miss this, as data modeling is the foundation of database and information engineering. And if you're a seasoned professional, you can come, too! More people with expertise can only mean more knowledge to share!
