MySQL Plugins aren't exactly a new feature, still they are poorly understood and rarely used.
But if used appropriately, they can take MySQL to new heights, easily doing what was impossible just yesterday.

This talk will introduce the attendees into the world of MySQL Plugins. You will learn what they are and how to use them.
More importantly, you will see what plugins are available, both official and third-party, and when it is beneficial to use them,
what real life problems they can solve.

This is a introductory talk for MySQL users and DBAs.
