Session Description

Have you ever heard a developer talking to themselves, saying “Ok, so if I am an Invoice record, and I want to see all of my related line items...” and thought they were crazy? Over several years of teaching data modeling to bright, new developers in Africa, together we discovered some techniques like “speaking your context aloud” that can help you gain mastery over context.  In another technique, we’ll step into a room (primary key) on the first floor (table) of a house (file), and build a staircase (relationship) to see related data.  With a firm understanding of context, you'll find managing the relationships graph, setting up portals and building calculations even easier than ever!
