IV. ORTHOGONALITY

Part IV. ORTHOGONALITY

To repeat something I said in Chapter 1, database design is not my favorite subject. The reason is that so little of design practice is truly scientific; normalization is scientific, of course, but not much else is. However, the topic of this part of the book, orthogonality, does represent another small piece of science in what’s otherwise still (sadly) a fairly subjective field.
