Advanced MySQL Query Tuning

English session - Advanced

So you know how to add an index to speed up your queries. Good but do you know how to multiple column indexes, hashed indexes, provide optimizer hints, use generated columns, or understand how character sets & collation mismatches hurt performance? Do you know how Common Table Expression, Windowing Functions, and subqueries work on later versions of MySQL? If you do not know the answers to these then you need to be in this session.

MySQL Without The SQL

English session - Beginner

MySQL has a new shell, new API, and new protocol that lets you use MySQL as a document store. This means no queries in SQL, schema-less data, and no data normalization. This is a gentle introduction to the MySQL Document Store from the new MySQL Shell and programming languages (C++, Java, JavaScript, Python, .Net, Node.JS, PHP and more). So if you need the power of a database but hate writing queries in Structure Query Language then attend.
