The tree stations of a database engineer: Normalization is the key At the beginning you try to normalize as much as possible. Clean Database layouts are cool and nobody really works with this databases. Normalization matters After working on the first small application you realize that its sometimes faster and better if you drop some of the rules. Normalization sucks With lots of experience you start to work on applications like Facebook or Digg. You forget all about normalization and use key value tables like MemcacheDB.

Want to get schooled in Illustrator, too. I actually understand the Photoshop paths better.
