SQL Magic! Tricks to Show SQL Features You’ve Probably Never Used

In this fun session you’ll see SQL used in new and exciting ways. Chris will perform SQL “magic tricks” including:

  • Cups & Balls: in SQL version of the classic “cups and balls” trick, watch as rows magically jump from one table to another
  • Find the Card: Chris will attempt to find a “card” (row) chosen by an audience member from a “deck” (table)
  • The Magically Changing Data Type: watch as a number changes to a date and back again!

But unlike real magicians, he’ll show you how the tricks work. This will enable you to perform your own “SQL magic” and build better Oracle Database applications.

This session is for developers looking to expand their SQL skills and see what Oracle Database has to offer them.
