Thanks for all the information and examples that is really making me rethink MySQL.
Well-delivered and informative on three different databases with three different use cases, making me rethink my MySQL monoculture just a bit (okay, I'm a big Redis fan, so no new news there :) ). Fit well with the graph database talk earlier to help break folks out of the M part of the LAMP stack, which is particularly valuable given various machinations around MySQL these days (though, hey, 5.7 is pretty cool!).
One nitpick: no one uses MySQL 5.7.0 to my knowledge; I think 5.7.9 was the first real production release, and 5.7.11+ is what's common. Would love to see the next edition of this talk using a current MySQl 5.7 release up against Postgres performance wise. My guess is that MySQL wins in a few more areas, but not to the point that Postgres' quality of life improvements aren't worth pursuing for a greenfield project.
There was a lot of really good information in this talk, I think the whole thing was broken down and executed well content wise. I would like to suggest that the tone of delivery be a little less monotone, purely from a speech perspective. Much love and respect to the speaker, just my personal thought.
Great talk on alternatives to MySQL that are not MS SQL, or NOSQL solutions. Will defiantly look more into these options for future projects.
