Data Modeling

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!

7:00pm - Registration / sign-in - networking
7:30pm - Introductions
7:35pm - Presentation - Data Modeling
8:00pm - Live Demonstration
9:00pm - Networking

Questions can be asked throughout the event, as long as we all work together to stay on track so we can cover everything.

Slides and demo will be available on after the event.

    Free stuff alert!
    I thought I would check into Neo4j a little to be ready for the next Meetup. About midway down, has a "Get your free e-book" link to download a PDF of the new O'Reilly title Graph Databases. It's sponsored by Neo Technology. Thank you, Neo Technology!

    Finally, Data Modeling clicks for me in a way that I've never accomplished in my own studies. The time just flew by.
