Bad Designs have Consequences

In 15 odd years of working with SQL, you see a lot of weird and unusual database designs. In this session, I’ll take you through some of the more ‘interesting’ design choices (and lack of choices) that I’ve seen over the years, discuss the problems with them and the consequences that happened as a result. All the examples will be based on real-world examples, although with any identifying characteristics carefully removed.
