Our world today is heavily technologically driven, and everyday there is massive amounts of information being transferred across different devices, systems, and networks. To the common person, it’s easy to take for granted how accessible, reliable, secure, and efficient data and information is shared between our devices and the internet. This is largely made possible by the critical work of data programmers, architects, and administrators, who design and implement the vast data systems that operate schools, hospitals, banks, airports, and so much more. This workshop will introduce you to the design process deployed in databases, and we will explore the various data modeling tools, such as E-R Diagrams and Normalization. By the end you should be able to craft a simple database system that deploys information efficiently and reliably.
