Session Summary for Attendees:  Coding is great fun, but we do it to explore complex algorithms, build beautiful applications, and deliver fantastic solutions for our customers, not just to do boring data processing. By expanding our knowledge of SQL facilities, we can let all the boring work be handled via SQL rather than a lot of middle-tier code, and we can get performance benefits as an added bonus. This session highlights some SQL techniques to solve problems that would otherwise require a lot of complex coding, freeing up your time to focus on the delivery of great applications.
