Lessons on Data Structrues

So I am a full time web developer right now and signed up for your site to extend and refresh my knowledge. One thing that I see lacking on every single tutorial site is data structure and how and when to implement them.

Everyone goes over how to implement CRUD features and things of that nature, but I would really like to see some more in depth resources about how to build a MySQL database for something like facebook or twitter. How to expand that if you want to add new features. And most importantly how to future proof (if possible) databases to make sites, social networks, and applications accessible as a company grows.

Thanks Again

We're talking about denormalization and modeling your data in a more responsible way in Stage 6. It's currently in production.
