A (Not So) Brief But (Very) Accurate History of PL/SQL

Preface PL/SQL is one of the top twenty programming languages in the world. While I’m no Matthew Symonds, and this is no Softwar, the history of PL/SQL deserves a helluva lot more than, “Oracle 7 had an advanced architecture and, like Sybase, was fully programmable via its elegant new PL/SQL programming language.” That’s why, during the process working on […]
