How to Avoid Common (but Deadly) MySQL Development Mistakes

"We need a database that 'just works' and runs at 'web scale.'" MySQL software developers are under pressure to do more in less time, and create applications that adapt to ever-changing requirements.

But it's true that some of a developer's time is wasted when their method of optimizing involves trying every combination of code and index definition. There must be a more straight path to achieve the best database code. This talk shows you some of these methods, including:

  • How to find out which indexes are the best fit for your MySQL application
  • How to protect yourself from the number one MySQL database security vulnerability on the web
  • How to decide when to optimize a MySQL database application with denormalization, indexes, caching, partitioning, sharding

At the end of this webinar, you'll be more productive and confident as you develop MySQL database-driven applications.
