Database design – Primary Keys

This is an interesting article on the selection of a primary key during database design: http://rapidapplicationdevelopment.blogspot.com/2007/08/in-case-youre-new-to-series-ive.html.

I’ve always wondered what the best primary key was and while there are pros and cons for both natural and surrogate keys, it seems that surrogate keys are the way to go.

First Week

Well, I’ve completed my first full week at my new job and everything has been going well so far. Even after only one week, it’s obvious that there are some very smart people here and I look forward to working with them in the future.

I’ve also started to work on my first two projects. The first is a simple addition to a web application, but it looks really cool so far. The second is constructing an intranet using Sharepoint 2007. I had experience with Sharepoint before, but there are so many things that I’ve had to learn about it for this project. I was a little uneasy at first, but I think that I’ll be able to get it done.
