Designing a Database from Scratch

January 17, 2018 | #code

As some may know, I am currently building an open-source platform for car enthusiasts. As I began my work, I spent a few days spinning my wheels 😅thinking about the best way to architect the database. I knew I wanted to stick with a trusty RDBMS, however building a clean, normalized model was tricky.

Thankfully, I have some very talented friends to lean on for help, including Allen Underwood, a fellow software engineer who happens to be a founder of the amazing Coding-Blocks podcast! In this video, we discuss designing the database and then build out a working schema.
