The Relational Database Dictionary, Extended Edition

£19.99

Product description

Synopsis:

Chris Date, one of the founders of the relational model, has updated and expanded his relational database dictionary to include more than 900 terms.

What you'll learn
■Over 900 relational database terms defined
■Precise and concise definitions, unlike those found on Wikipedia and other sources
■Clear examples used where appropriate
■Hyperlinks included in the eBook for easy reference
Who this book is for
People who need to know something about databases, although it is not their main line of work; people new to databases, and non computer people looking to be conversant in database.


Product Description: C. J. Date, one of the creators of the relational database model, and a team lead on the original DB2, created this 900 word dictionary of relational database terms as a handy reference. The reason for the book is that over half the terms are common English, such as "data definition, join, attribute, predicate, index, cube, key, DDS, table . . . " and when they are defined, even worse, the definitions are imprecise. It is a chore to find their true relational database meaning online. A version of the book with 586 definitions was published by O'Reilly and feedback from that book, along with numerous updates, led to this 900 word book.

Pages excellent condition, a little edge wear.
