Shweta Oak is studying for a Bachelor of Engineering at the Sardar Patel Institute of Technology in India, which is affiliated to Mumbai University. Shweta applied to complete a project as part of the HPCC Systems intern program in 2016. Unfortunately, we were not able to offer her a place. Most students at this stage would probably have moved on, but not Shweta!

Aetna, for example, recently started to offer their customers discounts to Apple watches.

ECL has two commonly known keywords for grouping together actions – PARALLEL and SEQUENTIAL.  Surely it is fairly obvious which one to use?  Use PARALLEL if you do not mind in which order operations are executed and use SEQUENTIAL if you do.  Unfortunately many people do not realise that SEQUENTIAL can be very bad for your query’s health.
