Do not press that button

@ Community Dinner Venue (The Mercantile Bar)

MySQL / MariaDB

Lightning Talk



Lightning Talk: Amazon RDS offers the ability to modify a production MySQL database with the click of a button. But even if the "modify" button is very tempting, it can easily backfire with unintended consequences. The talk will cover simple scenarios where you should hold your nerve and clicking that button should be the last option you consider.
