Hugh  DARWEN

 

 Hugh Darwen Ŕ nato a Warwick nel 1943 ed Ŕ uno scienziato informatico che Ŕ stato un dipendente di IBM Inghilterra dal 1967 al 2004 fortemente coinvolto nella storia dei data base relazionali.

 Dal 1978 al 1982 Ŕ stato uno degli architetti del Business System 12, un sistema di gestione del database che ha fedelmente abbracciato i principi del modello relazionale.

 Darwen Ŕ autore di "The Wall Askew" e co-autore di "The Third Manifesto" , una proposta per servire programmi orientati agli oggetti con database puramente relazionali  senza compromettere entrambe le parti e in modo da ottenere il meglio di entrambi i mondi, probabilmente qualcosa di meglio dei cosiddetti database orientati agli oggetti.

 Dal 2004-2013 ha tenuto conferenze sui database relazionali presso il Dipartimento di Informatica dell'UniversitÓ di Warwick (Regno Unito). Gli Ŕ stato inoltre assegnato un dottorato onorario in tecnologia presso l'UniversitÓ di Wolverhampton. Verso la fine della sua carriera ha insegnato un linguaggio database progettato da Chris Date che si chiama Tutorial D.

Ha scritto un libro sul bridge e cura un sito web sul tema dei problemi a doppio morto. Alan Truscott lo ha definito "l'autoritÓ principale del mondo" sui problemi a doppio morto.

╚ stato anche responsabile di una colonna in Bridge Magazine dal 1965 al 1990.

  Hugh Darwen is a computer scientist who was an employee of IBM United Kingdom from 1967 to 2004, and has been involved in the history of the relational model.

From 1978 to 1982 he was a chief architect on Business System 12, a database management system that faithfully embraced the principles of the relational model. He works closely with Christopher J. Date and represented IBM at the ISO SQL committees (JTC1 SC32 WG3 Database languages,[4] WG4 SQL/MM) until his retirement from IBM. Darwen is the author of The Askew Wall and co-author of The Third Manifesto, a proposal for serving object-oriented programs with purely relational databases without compromising either side and getting the best of both worlds, arguably even better than with so-called object-oriented databases.

From 2004 to 2013 he lectured on relational databases at the Department of Computer Science, University of Warwick (UK), and from 1989 to 2014 was a tutor and consultant for the Open University (UK)[9] where he was awarded a MUniv honorary degree for academic and scholarly distinction. He was also awarded a DTech (Doctor in Technology) honorary degree by the University of Wolverhampton. He currently teaches a database language designed by Chris Date and himself called Tutorial D.

He has written a book on the card game bridge and has a website on the subject of double dummy problems. Alan Truscott has called him "the world's leading authority" on composed bridge problems.

He was responsible for the double dummy column in Bridge Magazine from 1965 to 1990.
