About the Author:

David M. Kroenke is one of the pioneers of database technology In 1971, while working at the Pentagon, he programmed one of the world's first database management system (DBMS) products. In 1974 Grace Hopper appointed him to the CODAYSL EUF committee, and in 1977 he worked as ,a consultant for Fred Brooks at IBM. Kroenke helped to start the Microrim Corporation, where he led the development of the R:base family of DBMS products. In a 1991 article, Wayne Ratliff credited one of Kroenke's textbooks for giving him the idea for the development of d:base. In 1989 Kroenke consulted Microsoft on the project that led to the development of Microsoft Access. He is also the father of the semantic object model, a data model that many believe is superior to the entity-relationship model.

Kroenke is the author of five computer textbooks; his text Database Processing was first published in 1977 and is currently in its eighth edition. In 1990 and 1991 he was the Hanson Professor of Management Science at the University of Washington. In that same year the International Association for Computer Information Systems named him Computer Educator of the Year. He holds a B.S. in economics from the U.S. Air Force Academy, an M.S. in management science from the University of Southern California, and a Ph.D. from Colorado State University where he studied linear models under Franklin Graybill.
