Excellent explanation of the capabilities of MySQL 8. A few of the examples where very hard to read due to the font size/color, but all in all very easy to follow.

Very good summary of MySQL 8.0 new features and capabilities.

The Docker angle was only the last 20 mins or so,. It wasn't really an afterthought, but a destination. That being said, I found the first 40 minutes to be more helpful for me. When I get back home, I will try the Docker bits, so perhaps this will help me get into Docker use.

Very good talk. I didn't realise how many new toys MYSQL 8 has to offer.
