The Linux Users' Group of Davis (LUGOD) will be holding the following meeting:
July 20, 2015
7:00pm - 9:00pm
Some MySQL tricks -- an open discussion
presented by Bill Kendrick, CTO, Smashwords, Inc.
MySQL is the world's most widely used open source relational database
management system (RDBMS), and second most used of all RDBMSes, after
Oracle. Over the years at Smashwords, we've come up with a number of
methods to help address performance problems, including materialized
views, caching, slave databases, denormalization, historical tables,
This talk will briefly discuss some of these things, but since MySQL
is 20 years old, and SQL in general first appeared over 40 years ago,
the topic is quite large. Therefore, this meeting will be held as an
open discussion, with the audience invited to share their thoughts
and experience on the subject!

and distribution service. He spends a lot of his time at the mysql>
