Must read talk from MySQL Conference and Expo

I started going over the slides from talks from MySQL Conference and Expo 2011 to pick set of must see presentations and publish the list, but this is not happening due to lack of time. Instead I’m only going to recommend 1 talk, from list of tutorials I had a chance to review. If you have not check it out yet, take a look at Linux and Hardware Optimizations by Yoshinori Matsunobu. Check out the slides which are very well done with many graphs and verbose enough explanations so you can easily follow slides alone.

Were you excited by some other talk on MySQL Conference and Expo ? Feel free to leave it as a comment to this post.

    This is it really. Yoshinori covers everything. It was totally worth the time and money to go there.

    For dessert, check out the Ignite talks from Baron and Josh and that’s about it. (Of course, Baron’s keynote was yet another thing. Best community keynote we ever had so far.)

    I like many of the talks attended – my impression is that this edition was a really, really good!

    There were a few talks that really stood out:

    Justin Swanhart: “Summary Tables, Aggregate Tables and Materialized Views Using Flexviews”

    Ori Herrnstadt: “A New Approach For Dealing with Complex Database Schemas”
