[Quoted] Oh, wow! I wish I could have joint such ameeting, if only to have him sign my copy of his "An Introduction to Database Systems" (1st ed, 1975) that taught me the basics of the relational model and SQL as it was used in the development of System R.

[Quoted] Must be the same guy that came up with the following as the last of three main principles to keep in mind for MongoDB query performance:

<q>
The RAM on your server should be sufficient so that most data is held in memory. Obviously, thats not always possible, but query performance drops quickly when disk IO is involved. Obviously, SSDs are better than HDD when you can afford them.
</q>

[Quoted] For those that can't wait to see the other two principles: https://www.quora.com/How-can-I-improve-the-performance-of-my-MongoDB- queries
