Just in from Peter Robson on the Oracle-L listserver:
Chris Date on Database Design and Relational Theory, Edinburgh, June 7/8 2012
I’m using the ‘good offices’ (thank you Mark) of the list to inform you all that Chris Date is making a rare appearance in the UK (he was last here two years ago) for a 2 day seminar on the above topic. It is planned that all delegates will receive a complimentary copy of his very latest book on the subject, just being published by O’Reilly. Two years ago people attended his seminar on SQL from as far away as Benelux and Spain, so lets agree that this posting could be of interest to anyone in Western Europe!
More details are here: http://www.justsql.co.uk/chris_date/cjd_edin_june_2012.htm
I’ve heard Chris Date speak on the topic before and it’s a real treat to hear such clarity of thought and presentation (the only person in the Oracle community that comes close, in my view, is Cary Millsap); so if you’ve got the opportunity to attend, take it.
