Using MySQL is an art. Most of the time, the bottleneck of a website or application are database performance issues. For instance, did you know about the penalties for UTF-8 fields? Or about what can make or break your query caching? And what's the deal with cardinality and selectivity and why is it important? During this talk, Joshua will show you 15 practical MySQL tips found in his daily work that can help you speed up your database and/or queries.

Great talk, though I knew most of them through the MySQL Dev and DBA exams, it was a good refresher! +1 for the humor during the talk.

Good talk. Bashing varchars and utf8 is always good

Thanks for the talk, very interesting! I knew some things already but picked up a few new things I'll be passing on to others. The information-density was pretty high but not too bad. Didn't quite agree on some assumptions, like limiting your range of countries and preferring latin-1 in some cases. These limit your scalability imho. At any rate the talk gave me something to think about.

This is the talk that I learnt the most from during the day. It was incredibly interesting and had many points to think about. The speaker was clear and funny in a nice way! Learning and laughing, I wish school would have been this fun :D

The only problem I had was that the speaker didn't plan the time correctly and seemed stressed and had to rush trough some points. Next time it could be nice if he plans the time a bit better. Maybe skip a tip or two so that he has good time for all of them without constantly saying he needs to rush it now. :)

Otherwise... Amazing!

Next time skip the obvious tips like "RTFM". You'll have more time for the interesting ones.
However, a very good presentation with a good sense of humor.

This session teached me stuff I can put to practice RIGHT NOW. I will never ever just go for UTF-8 again without thinking. I will make sure my queries are cached from now on. I actually know what Sharding is now.

Thanks! Nice session in front of a full audience.
