MySQL 5.7 New Features for Developers (slides)
This is a presentation from outside my comfort zone – MySQL. So as most of you know, I usually do sessions about Oracle core technologies (rdbms), Big Data (Hadoop) and Spark. Even though I’ve been working with MySQL for quite some time, I never considered myself to be much of an expert – it was just always in the background.
Since I decided 2016 is going to be a year of challenges in my last year resolution, I choose to take the things I learned using MySQL 5.7 and make them into a public session. I consulted some of my co-workers, and decided that the best thing will be to start with MySQL for Developers. I took everything I thought that might interest developers and off we went.
I submitted this session to couple of user group conferences (and to the Oracle Open World) – but the first conference that it actually was presented at was DOAG 2016 in Germany. Since then, I presented this in two other events (the MySQL meetup in Israel and in a private event) and got some really positive feedback.
In the agenda:
- Optimizer, Performance and InnoDB changes
- Native JSON datatype
- The Performance Schema and SYS Schema
- Other features we should know
- What are we waiting for in MySQL 8.0?
