How to Stop Hating MySQL: Fixing Common Mistakes and Myths
If you find yourself muttering "MySQL is awful," you cannot miss this session. Many common-sense approaches backfire when applied to schemas and queries in MySQL. Sheeri K. Cabral of The Pythian Group will explain why that happens and how to think about designing, tuning, and optimizing MySQL, so you can save your hate for more important things, such as vi vs. emacs discussions. There will be plenty of time, so feel free to ask any questions, particularly about query and schema optimization (actual or in the abstract).
