As our requirement for our DBMS subject, we interviewed Mr. Charleton Lopez, one of the database administrators hired by Accenture, last Saturday at SM Mall of Asia.
During the interview, there are some key points from what Mr. Lopez said that caught my attention. There’s this one line that talks about the law of supply and demand.
