Speaker Ami Levin of SolidQ

Join SQL Server guru Ami Levin as he revisits some of the fundamental design principals of relational databases: normalization rules, key selection, and the controversies associated with these issues from a practical perspective.

Ami will discuss the benefits and challenges of using different types of keys - natural, surrogates, artificial, and others.

Each key offers benefits from multiple aspects: data consistency, application development, maintenance, portability and performance.

Get ready for some surprising demonstrations?

Ami Levin is a consultant with SolidQ. Last fall he moved to California from Israel, where he led the Israeli SQL Server User Group.Ami is a regular speaker at Microsoft Tech-Ed Israel, Dev Academy, and other SQL Server conferences and blogs at SQL Server Tuning Blog.
