Perfectly intelligent programmers often struggle when forced to work with SQL. Why? Joe Celko believes the problem lies with their procedural programming mindset, which keeps them from taking full advantage of the power of declarative languages. The result is overly complex and inefficient code, not to mention lost productivity.

This book will change the way you think about the problems you solve with SQL programs.. Focusing on three key table-based techniques, Celko reveals their power through detailed examples and clear explanations. As you master these techniques, you'll find you are able to conceptualize problems as rooted in sets and solvable through declarative programming. Before long, you'll be coding more quickly, writing more efficient code, and applying the full power of SQL

. Filled with the insights of one of the world's leading SQL authorities - noted for his knowledge and his ability to teach what he knows.

. Focuses on auxiliary tables (for computing functions and other values by joins), temporal tables (for temporal queries, historical data, and audit information), and virtual tables (for improved performance).

. Presents clear guidance for selecting and correctly applying the right table technique.


優秀的程式設計師在被迫使用SQL時常常感到困惑。為什麼呢?Joe Celko認為問題在於他們的程序化編程思維,這使他們無法充分利用聲明式語言的威力。結果就是過於複雜和低效的程式碼,更不用說生產力的損失了。
