The first MySQL Tech Tour in Dallas is over. A capacity crowd filled the room. Only a few had never had ‘hands on’ with the MySQL database and very few were comfortable source code readers. The majority came to hear about embedding MySQL, how to tun systems for better performance, and some new features in the product.
Benjamin Wood started with a presentation on the history of MySQL and the changes in the product over the last few releases. Craig Sylvester showed how to use embedded MySQL. Then Benjamin capped off the event with a presentation on database monitoring and performance tuning. The event did go slightly over scheduled time due to an extended question and answer period following the presentations.
Thanks to all who attended.
