10. SQL > The Language

The Language

Why did you become interested in the query languages?

Don: I have always been interested in languages.

Do you speak other languages (beyond English)?

Don: No, I don’t speak any other human language, but I like to read and write, and I find languages a fascinating subject. I was very lucky in my career to be at the right place at the right time, when Ted Codd had his groundbreaking ideas about the relational data model. It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a participant in a project that had the impact of our early relational database research. My existing interest in languages helped me to find a niche in this project, and I’m very grateful to have had that opportunity.
