    Abstract (250 words or less): 

    As a technology, NoSQL is a strong database technology for a fairly narrow set of use cases. Unfortunately, its name has encouraged too many people to reject SQL as a whole. SQL is a foundational technology that has enabled the Information, Internet and Mobile Eras. Human civilization runs on SQL (and, to a lesser extent, PL/SQL). This session celebrates the impact of SQL and PL/SQL on the lives of our users and the technologists who use them to build applications.
