For those of you who will be coming, I will post my slides to Slidershare early this next week, and I’ll update this post with those slides. I plan to go over some key MySQL internals: Replication, Partitioning, important parameters for tuning MySQL, non-plain vanilla forms of MySQL like Percona and Maria, as well as cover a few basics about InnoDB and analyzing and optimizing slow queries.
It’ll be an advanced presentation, but not inaccessible for intermediate (or even beginning) developers. I’m not gonna be quite so “fly by the seatof my pants” as I was in my last two WordCamp talks (eg my Git talk and my caching talk) but I’ll still do my best to make the topic approachable and fun.
Hope to see you there. Slides coming soon!
