Learning Data Modeling by Doing

In GoodData, you do not need to design or maintain the physical data model. This aspect of data modeling is managed automatically from within the platform. 

The following articles will guide you through your data modeling experience by working with the GoodData platform tools.

Steps:

  1. Planning Your Data Model. Regardless of your data modeling experience, review Planning Your Data Model, which provides an overview of data modeling in CloudConnect and some best practices to designing within the application.
  2. Tutorial - Creating Your First Data Model. Begin learning about the LDM Modeler through a step-by-step tutorial that guides you through the process of building your data model, deploying it to a project, and interacting with it in the Portal. See Tutorial - Creating Your First Data Model.
  3. Working with Logical Data Models and Working with Objects in Your Data Model. These sections provide information on how to work with the content of your data model to manage large-scale changes. See Working with Logical Data Models and Working with Objects in Your Data Model.
  4. Logical Data Model User Interface. This chapter provides reference information on the interface for LDM Modeler. See Logical Data Modeler User Interface.
