Fragment of an entity relation schema
Unfortunately a lot of people, thinks that design a relational database is something very simple and that anyone that have a pair of classes of Microsoft Access in a academy can dedicate to it. But doesn't occur the same when instead of a database the work is about design a flat, an airplane or a car. In all this cases the people knows that needs an architect, an aeronautic engineer and automobile engineer, respectively. But who has the guilty of this way of think?

grave with a computer
The past month died three great geniuses that had made that the computing be as it is today. I'm referring to John MacCarthy, Dennis Ritchie and Steve Jobs. Probably you only know who is the last, which is the only one that has had media coverage. However is the less important, because if the other two had not existed, Steve Jobs perhaps wouldn't have achieved anything.

The tsunamis or seaquakes can be generated by earthquakes, submarine landslides, volcanic eruptions and giant meteors. All this variety of phenomena can be simulated in a computer to take preventive measures. Fill your mind with "Tsunami simulation"

During any software development is normal that the client want that the application does more things. If the computer specialist don't have all the things well defined from the beginning can make more difficult the development, but that isn't a problem, the problem is that normally the client don't want to pay more than that was established in the initial budget.
