Fri, 26 April
Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) frameworks have surged in popularity among developers, streamlining their interactions with the database.

This session highlights some SQL techniques to solve common application patterns that may otherwise require a lot of complex coding, thus freeing up your time to focus on the delivery of great applications.
