Organizing Chris Date's seminar in Ljubljana May 23-24 2011

I have invited Chris J. Date, an independent author, lecturer, researcher, and consultant of international renown, specializing in relational database technology, to have a 2 day seminar "How to Write Correct SQL and Know It: A Relational Approach to SQL". The 2-day seminar will take place in Ljubljana, Slovenia, on May 23-24 2011.

Chris is best known for his book "An Introduction to Database Systems" (eighth edition, Addison-Wesley, 2004), which has sold some 725,000 copies and is used by several hundred colleges and universities worldwide.
For more details about this seminar please read on my home page.

Why this seminar? So many times I am involved in performance troubleshooting and in more than 80% of all cases the fault is bad design and poorly written SQL statements. With organizing this event I would like to give a good opportunity to all developers (either on Oracle database or any other database) to get more theoretical knowledge about SQL.
