Melanie Caffrey: Before entering the world of Oracle and database technology in general, Melanie Caffrey was a researcher, first for the academic world in Colorado, then for the corporate world in New York. The desire to explore a new career path led her to Columbia University's Computer Technology and Applications (CTA) Program, which ultimately changed her life. Shortly before finishing at Columbia, she began developing applications using SAP technology with an Oracle database. Additionally, she enjoys spending a semester or two, here and there, teaching the class that is the foundation for this book and, occasionally, introductory courses in SQL and the Oracle Server, to the students at Columbia University's CTA program.
