This tutorial is targeted at the professional developer who wants to get the very best out of MySQL. We will discuss simple to advanced caching methods. Manipulating time to make queries run faster. Getting an overview of the queries that are run on the database and discuss strategies you can use to speed them up.

For many developers upgrading hardware, changing mysql settings or moving to newer MySQL Server Version are out of immediate reach and require complex approval processes. This talk is designed to focus on the 20% of the issues that cause 80% of the performance problems and that is to do with how your application uses your database. Warning: the things in this talk can be used in cloud environments!
