Today at Kaleidoscope I will be doing a 90-minute session comparing MySQL’s SQL syntax to the ANSI/ISO SQL:2003 standard, entitled What Do You Mean, “SQL Syntax Error”?
You can download the PDF slides now.
For those that may be following along the presentation later today (4 pm Eastern time), here are some links that I may throw out during the session:
SQL 2003 standard – actually it is “Information
taken from the Final Committee Draft (FCD) of ISO/IEC
9075-2:2003″ but it’s extremely close to the actual standard.
The actual standard is a document that costs a non-trivial
amount of money to get, and cannot be republished.
