APPLY Yourself

Speaker: Brad Schulz

The APPLY clause was introduced to T-SQL in SQL 2005, and yet eight years later, relatively few people know about it.  It's barely covered in SQL-related books and blogs, and yet it's an extremely powerful tool in constructing queries.  This presentation offers lots of demos and will open your eyes to the potential of APPLY.  Once you learn how to use it, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.

You'll learn:

  • How to use APPLY (both CROSS APPLY and OUTER APPLY) and how it works
  • Practical applications in using APPLY
  • How APPLY can make previously unreadable queries clearer
  • Additional skills in using Table-Valued Functions, Unpivotting data, and XML Shredding

Brad Schulz is a lead SQL Developer with DesignMind. He's a Transact SQL (T-SQL) performance tuning expert and also works with SSIS, Reporting Services, and Analysis Services.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
