Alumni Association, 2013-02-21, He graduated from King City Secondary School in 1988, and in 1993 he graduated from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Systems Design Engineering. He contributed to the Apache HTTP Server and he added the LIMIT clause to the mSQL DBMS. A variant of this LIMIT clause had already been around for a decade in mainframe relational database management systems (like Oracle Rdb running on VAX/VMS, formerly from Digital Equipment Corporation), but apparently it had not yet been picked up by the emerging PC-based databases. It was later adapted by several other SQL-compatible DBMS.WEB,weblinkweblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20010222185341weblink">weblink yes, 2001-02-22, mod_info, Apache Reference, 2012-05-06, WEB,weblinkweblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20110606013605weblink">weblink 2011-06-06, MaxDB & PHP - Ready for the Web!, Ulf, Wendel, 2012-05-06, He released the first version of PHP in 1995weblink
