ABSTRACT
In this Anecdotes department article, Don Chamberlin details his early work with Ray Boyce designing the relational language SQL. After meeting E.F. (Ted) Codd at a symposium at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, New York, in 1972, Boyce and Chamberlin believed that it should be possible to design a relational language that would be accessible to users without formal training in mathematics or computer programming. Their early work on the Sequel language at IBM eventually evolved into the SQL international standard.
