2020-11-05_15-26-52.png• Just because you CAN doesn’t mean you SHOULD

Calculate once, reference many times

• Simple > complex

• Only calculate when you need to

• Sparsity is not your enemy

• Big and fast > small and slow

• Booleans = great. Text = bad

• Text joins = worse

• Don’t let exceptions overcomplicate the model

• Sums and lookups are good, but never together
