Learn Oracle SQL Design Patterns

Understanding SQL design patterns is critical to every SQL developer. Whether you are working on a small project or a multi-million dollar system, it's critical that developers understand the common design patterns with SQL so that they have a framework for common SQL solutions.

SQL programming is unlike any other language: there is no flow control, no loops, no variables and no method for storing intermediate results. Instead, SQL leverages "predicates", a logical structure that is perfect for design patterns.

Predicates, joins, subqueries and aggregation are SQL basics. The advanced part of SQL learning curve demands a SQL programmer to develop the ability to recognize complex patterns. Whether you are working on a small project or a multi-million dollar system, it's critical that developers understand the common design patterns with SQL so that they have a framework for common SQL solutions.

Vadim Tropashko of Oracle Corporation has just completed the first definitive reference for SQL design patterns, an authoritative book on expert SQL design for the working professional.
