Mike Stonebraker
MIT and Turing Award Winner

Monday, September 14
Humanities Theatre
2:00 p.m.

Abstract:

This Turing Award talk intermixes a bicycle ride across America during the summer of 1988 with the design, construction and commercialization of Postgres during the late 80’s and early ‘90’s.  Striking parallels are observed, leading to a discussion of what it takes to build a new DBMS.  Also, indicated are the roles that perseverance and serendipity played in both endeavours.
