The Use of Table References in Database Design and Development

In this meeting, the participants discussed table references in databases. They discussed how table references enforce referential integrity and prevent the insertion of invalid data. They also mentioned that table references can form the basis of indices. One participant expressed resistance to using table references because they wanted to make the database as simple as possible for future engineers to understand and work with. However, the other participant suggested that the engineering team would prefer table references for flexibility and better referential integrity. They also discussed the importance of striking a balance between security and productivity, as spending too much time on security can hinder progress with developing features. The meeting concluded with one participant expressing their intention to refactor the database and providing an update on their progress the following day.
