Weekly Question #2 (Due Friday, September 11)
Leave your response as a comment on this post by the beginning of class on September 11, 2015. Remember, it only needs to be three or four sentences. For these weekly questions, I’m mainly interested in your opinions, not so much particular “facts” from the class!

Answer one of the two questions below (not both):
- What do you think is the trickiest thing about creating an ERD from a problem description? What advice would you give to deal with that issue?
- Give an example of how choosing the wrong cardinality (1-to-many, many-to-many) could cause problems when the database is implemented and used.
