SQLAuthority Contests – Get 50 Amazon Gift Cards – Experience NuoDB Starlings 1.0.2

SQL is the standard database language. It has been around since the 1970s. ACID (Atomic, Consistent, Isolated, and Durable) guarantees that the database tier handles the transaction processing in a consistent and reliable manner, freeing the application from managing these tasks (and freeing you from having to code them into the application), while guaranteeing the integrity of the data in the database.

  • Edgar F. Codd (August 23, 1923 – April 18, 2003) was an English computer scientist who, while working for IBM, invented the relational model for database management, the theoretical basis for relational databases. He made other valuable contributions to computer science, but the relational model, a very influential general theory of data management, remains his most mentioned achievement.

  • Edgar F. Codd was a British computer scientist who is credited with formulating the relational model for database management that became the basis for relational database management systems.

    He added other important theories to computer science, but the relational model, a very important universal theory of data management, is considered his most important achievement. Between 1960 and 1980 he devised his theories of data arrangement, resulting in his paper A Relational Model of Data for Large Shared Data Banks in 1970, one year after he published a paper inside IBM.

    Codd received a PhD in 1965 from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.[3] His thesis was about self-replication in cellular automata, extending on work of von Neumann and showing that a set of eight states was sufficient for universal computation and construction.[6] His design for a self-replicating computer was only implemented in 2010.

    In the 1960s and 1970s he worked out his theories of data arrangement, issuing his paper “A Relational Model of Data for Large Shared Data Banks” [link] in 1970, after an internal IBM paper one year earlier.[7] To his disappointment, IBM proved slow to exploit his suggestions until commercial rivals started implementing them.

    Don’t forget Boyce-Codd normal form (BCNM) as stronger version of the third normal form (3NF)!
