    Documenting Data yet again

    The longer we work with data, models, tables, schemas etc. The more we are starting to get lost in all of these objects.

    Questions are starting to arise:

    What is this table for?
    Is it being used?
    What was it’s goal?

    I guess you can agree that documenting stuff is not the most attractive part of working with data … but hell it is essential. The sooner we realise that the easier our work will be down the road.

    Fortunately or unfortunately we as people working with data are like librarians, we are creating order out of chaos (by cataloging, describing etc. data). In attached articles author is describing some best practices to help us out in this journey.
