If you’re anything like me, you probably still use MySQL the same way as you did in the 3.x days. Let’s be honest, when was the last time we read the docs? However, things have moved on, and these days there are some pretty awesome features in MySQL—document store, spatial support, and more—that would make your life easier, and your app faster. Things you could and should be using. Join Liam and discover what modern MySQL looks like, and how you can use it to improve your applications.

This was a great primer into some features that I didn't know about. I remember reading the MySQL 3.23 docs cover to cover as I was first getting started with MySQL... I haven't read through them again since, so very little of this was on my radar. I'm very excited for MySQL 8 now!

Packed with useful information. Thanks!!

That was an awesome talk. So many features that we can start using at my job.

I'm always into MySQL, so I really liked learning about facets of the database that I might not be using or know about yet.

Great presentation! Very exciting to see the next version of MySQL. It was great to be reminded of features that I had forgotten about and to discover new ones.
