2014 Edition. This cookbook of advanced techniques is for anyone who knows the basics of SQL and wants to move beyond simple SELECT-FROM-WHERE queries. You'll find solutions to problems that analysts, app developers, and database programmers often face, from simple tasks, like picking random rows, to complex operations, like traversing hierarchies. Each recipe includes a discussion of the underlying logic, important concepts, and best practices. Take full advantage of standard (ANSI/ISO) SQL, or use DBMS-specific features that dramatically extend the power of standard SQL. Use the scores of code examples directly in real-world DBMS applications, or as a source of insight for related problems.

    Kaitlynn

    A short girl walks in. She was wearing loose grey sweatpants , a tight fitted red v - neck shirt and red vans. Her hair was pulled into a messy bun. She looked around with mysterious chocolate brown eyes as she flicked her bangs out of her face. She smiled showing off a set of dimples. "Hi." She said softly with a little wave. "I'm Kaitlynn."
