Good schema design - and why it matters!


Pretty much every website is underpinned by a database or two - and how you're storing data in there really matters. This talk will cover the best ways to set up your schema to store your data, how to change your schema without any downtime, and how to use the brand-new migration features in Django 1.7 to your best advantage.

We'll take a look at database normalisation (and why it's not always a good idea), denormalisation, schemaless data, how to best set up your tables and indexes for different load types (heavy read/heavy write/balanced), and how to scale up your database and its schema as you grow.
