Modeling Denormalization

A session at RailsConf Europe 2008

Wednesday 3rd September, 2008

1:40pm to 2:10pm (CET)

Most developers have been trained to normalize data wherever possible. When business requirements start walking all over your nicely-normalized data, your queries can grow complex and inefficient. Denormalization of data can ease the pressure when your queries get out of hand, but it shouldn’t be handled as an after-thought. Creating first-class representations of your denormalized data makes it easy to keep data in sync and developers on the same page.
