A Dash Of Theory

Fabian Pascal’s latest column in Database Magazine titled “What a Database And a DBMS Are” provides a wholesome broth of theory as an antidote to sloppy practice. We all need a good slapping sometimes, possibly us in the data warehousing world more than most ;) so I’ll also just reemphasise my liking for his Database Debunkings site.

I wonder what FB would make of the Wikipedia entries on Relational Database, the Relational Model, and Database Management Systems? I think I’ll email him to ask … wish me luck boys, I’m going in!

  1. Heh! Good to see Fabian at it once again. Someone has to constantly remind these idiots that database theory is NOT something that just got invented!
