Announced on Sunday at Oracle Open World 2011 is the release of the Effective MySQL book series starting with the “Optimizing SQL Statements” title. The goal of the Effective MySQL series is a highly practical, concise and topic specific reference providing applicable knowledge to use on each page. A feedback comment provided today was “no fluff” which is great comment to re-enforce the practical nature of the series.
For all those in New York this is an upcoming MySQL presentation held in conjunction with our colleagues at General Assembly on March 22nd 2011.
This presentation “How Better Indexes Save You Money” will be discussing how one simple technique can result in huge MySQL performance improvements and with zero code changes necessary. Many people think they know indexes, however MySQL and MySQL Storage Engines have some specifics that differ from more traditional RDBMS products. Learn some of the key analysis and verification techniques and be able to see immediate potential results in performance.
You can find more details at Meetup.com EffectiveMySQL. This new group is all about highly technical MySQL related content “no fluff, just stuff”.
