How to Avoid Even More of the Common (but Deadly) MySQL Development Mistakes

“Why can’t I just save my data to a file?”

Using an SQL database seems so complex to get right, and for good reason. The variety of data-driven applications is practically limitless, and as project requirements change, we find ourselves taking shortcuts and adopting bad habits. But there are proven methods to understanding how to develop and manage data in a scalable and reliable way. This talk shows you some of these methods, including:

  • How to avoid the secret security vulnerability that you’re probably guilty of.
  • How to use optimizer hints effectively.
