I'll be giving 2 talks this year. Here's a quick description:
Want Faster Queries?
Fixing slow queries is often very easy if you know what to look for and it can give huge performance gains. In this talk I'll cover common SQL mistakes, how to identify "bad" queries, indexing techniques, using EXPLAIN to verify execution plan, etc.
Get your Replication on: Advanced Techniques, Tips and Tricks
I'll be co-speaking with Chris Schneider for this one! We have lots of interesting uses for replication and some best practices up our sleeves. Warning: we won't be covering how to set up basic replication - that's a prerequisite for this talk.
