Please join Percona’s Consultant David Ducos on Thursday, December 29, 2016 at 10 am PST/ 1:00 pm EST (UTC-8) as he presents JSON in MySQL 5.7.
Since it was implemented in MySQL 5.7, we can use JSON as a data type. In this webinar, we will review some of the useful functions that have been added to work with JSON.
We will examine and analyze how JSON works internally, and take into account some of the costs related to employing this new technology.
At the end of the webinar, you will know the answers to the following questions:
- What is JSON?
- Why don’t we keep using VARCHAR?
- How does it work?
- What are the costs?
- What limitations should we take into account?
- What are the benefits of using MySQL JSON support?
David studied Computer Science at the National University of La Plata, and has worked as a Database Consultant since 2008. He worked for three years in a worldwide platform of free classifieds, until starting work for Percona in November 2014 as part of the Consulting team.
