Upcoming Webinar on Index Design

The proper tools and techniques for designing indexes in MySQL is a broad subject, which causes grief for many developers and database administrators.

I’ll present a webinar Tools and Techniques for Index Design on October 3, 2012 at 10:00am Pacific time to give an overview of the best practices and procedures for you to build index design into your development and operations work.  Please register for this free webinar and join me on Wednesday!

The topics in this webinar are in part a preview of our new Live Virtual Training for Analyzing SQL Queries with Percona Toolkit. I’ve been developing this training this summer, and we’re going to present it October 29 – November 2, 2012.
