Since launch, this current version of MySQL have new features such as: JSON Data Type and Generated/Virtual Columns,. If your application is breaking when you upgrade to 5.7, the new GROUP BY default may be the reason, learn here how to properly address that issue and keep your data consistent, how to index JSON data type and when to use generated columns.

Good intro to MySQL 5.7. Answered a lot of questions about Mysql5.7 that I had.

Great talk, albeit with a lot to take in. Go metric!

Undoubtedly the best session so far. Nicely made presentation, lots to learn and great to see a live demo! I ran into the GROUP BY error pretty recently (partly due to my bad/lazy habit of using stacks) and I agree 100% that disabling the mode isn't the correct way. I guess it depends on how many queries need to be changed throughout the code.

Thanks for the great talk. I made me realize I need to start testing our application with 5.7 ASAP even if it's only to get the `sys` schema.

Great presenter! Extremely knowledgeable about the topic. Demo really helped to understand how the concepts apply to real use. Q&A at the end was very informative.

Definitely the best talk of the conference that I went to. Learned a lot that was applicable to what I've been actively doing in my organization.

I learned so much in this session! It definitely holds the record for me saying "that is so cool!" the most times during the session. Thank you so much for putting this together and sharing your knowledge with the rest of us.

Great presentation and relevant content that we will be using as soon as we can get 5.7 in place.
