DB first came up for me when working on a NLP interface that converted natural language search to SQL. Taught myself SQL and MySQL, using it to keep track of research data processing and experiments.
Scientific programmer, research engineer, many years working in speech and natural language technology R&D, with academic training in EE and neuroscience. Use MySQL for research databases. Parent, hiker, bike commuter, folk music fan.
