« Don’t use foreign keys, it makes things difficult to work with. We don’t use them in real life projects. »

@SiegfriedEhret What. A good RDB model stands and falls with foreign keys. I hate DB models where keys are enforced by the application, or not at all, rather than by the RDBMS. If they don't want the foreign keys, then why are they using an RDB? Go with a NoSQL DB instead. Or better yet: a flat file.
