This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Agree, C.J. Date books are classic. Check this page: http://www.pgro.uk7.net/books.htm To start with, this book is probably the best: An Introduction to Database Systems It's horribly expensive but used copies are quite affordable. Also check a web site from where C.J. Date with his friend Fabian Pascal wage a war against OOP, XML and the IT industry as a whole. [ December 08, 2003: Message edited by: Mapraputa Is ]
