Normalized data is for sissies

October 27, 2004 at 11:51 AM

Kottke discusses database normalization and when and why it's important, or maybe why it's not important.

Personally it makes some things a pain in the ass, but I believe it's definitely neccessary. Getting the data you need sometimes requires complicated queries, but when you're adding or editing data it only has to go one place.

Wow, it's been forever since I've heard someone (other than me or Christina) actually mention normalization.
