May Meeting next week!

When: 7pm Thursday, May 20
Where: FreeGeek
Who: Melissa Hollingsworth
What: Normalization!

Normalization is a tool, not a goal. We’ll talk about when and why to apply it, do a bog-standard overview of the normal forms requirements, and take a look at how careful denormalization can improve performance without hosing the data model’s sustainability.

This talk will also feature a new ruleset for those who wish to play the PDXPUG Normalization Drinking Game. BYO if you can.

After the meeting, we will adjourn to the Lucky Lab.

See you there!
