Hi. My name is Alf Alexander Pedersen, I'm Norwegian, and I have held an Engineering degree in Computer Science since 1974.
I have spent about 35 years in the database/software business, working as a programmer, designer, analyst, and CTO/CEO of several consultant companies. I started out by programming in assembly languages, then worked with Fortran, Cobol, and then PL/SQL and SQL for the last 20 years. During that time, I have worked with all kinds of database systems (hierarchical, network, relational).
The last 10-15 years I have mostly concentrated on data
analysis, logical database design (applying relational theory on
real-life database systems), as well as being a database design QA
controller on major projects. All/mostly on Oracle.
I have also participated in several projects over the years, representing Oracle Corporation as a hired hand (some call it a mercenary...).
I have worked on projects for military intelligence, banking, metallurgical industry, oil industry, radio/TV systems, newspapers, governmental systems, and much more, most of it classified/confidential.
I created this site in order to share my life-long experience with all professionals who want to learn more about database design and how to improve yourself for the tough marketplace we have today.
Personally, I have no wives, one lovely granddaughter, and two nice grown up children.
Play around on this site. I hope you'll have an interesting DB learning experience.
All the best,
Alf A. Pedersen
