Indexing Talk Online

I am doing a quick blog post to announce that I have put an indexing talk online*. Most recently, I delivered this indexing talk at Confoo and Scale 11x.

The talk is on YouTube at Are You Getting the Best Out of Your MySQL Indexes? There are also PDF slides.
From the official conference description, if you want to know more:
MySQL indexes are often used to make performance better. However, they can make performance suffer if you are not using them properly. Oracle ACE Director Sheeri Cabral explains the pitfalls to avoid with indexes and how to utilize compound indexes to maximize index availability with the least amount of write overhead.

    I've already shared my presentation few hours before I made it during PLMCE 2013, back on April 24. The idea behind the presentation was simple (and I think that any MySQL user who is planning to upgrade to MySQL 5.6.x in production should do something like this): let's read the "What Is New in MySQL 5.6" manual page and check new features one by one.

    This is what I am going to do with the content of that manual page in the upcoming blog posts (and what was done as background work for the presentation):

    At the recent New York PHP Group in New York, I gave a presentation on “Secrets of mysqlnd”. While there are no real “secrets” of the new MySQL Native Driver for PHP, available in PHP 5.3, and the default for PHP 5.4+ replacing libmysqlclient, there are new features of the driver many are unaware of. If you have ever had to fight the gods with compiling a particular version of PHP with the right libmysqlclient dependency, the good news is that legacy requirement is no longer necessary.

    Webinar: Avoiding common traps when designing a MySQL application

    On January 16th at 10 AM Pacific/1 PM Eastern, I will give a webinar about the main traps that are awaiting you when designing and building a stable and high-performance MySQL application.

    I will discuss a broad range of topics, from hardware and backups to instrumentation and indexing. I often see during my consulting practice wrong configuration putting data at risk or huge wastes of money to buy powerful hardware where a few indexes could have done the same result.

    So if you think your MySQL servers are not in an optimal state, I invite you to sign up on this page (follow the “Register” link).

    How to run a flawless technical demo
    +6 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Why demos?

    For as long as I can remember in my public speaking activities, I have always planned my presentations with some sort of live demo in it. I am always surprised when a conference venue asks me to provide my slides in advance, to be loaded in an anonymous computer with no chance of demos. I always turn down such offers, as I always want to provide a demo.

    There have been times when technical or time constraints prevented me from demoing something, and in these cases I felt that the presentation was lacking a vital part. But I always try. I have even given demos during lightning talks, and those were the ones that made me feel really good.

    I have given hundreds of presentations, and hundreds of demos, and as in every human activity, I have made plenty of mistakes. I believe I have learned some valuable lesson from my mistakes, and this

    While MySQL is a popular and widely used database product, there are some default features and settings which can be foreign in comparison with other commercial RDBMS products such as Oracle. In this discussion, Ronald Bradford will discuss some of the MySQL defaults that are not what you may expect. These include understanding the concept of storage engines, and the default non-transactional state, how silent data truncations occur which affect your data, ideal practices for date management, and the MySQL transaction isolation options. These are all critical to clearly understand and implement correctly for data integrity

    Determining the Query Execution Plan (QEP) of an SQL statement is the primary analysis tool for DBAs. Understanding how to interpret the information from the EXPLAIN command and what additional commands and tools exist to add supplementary information are essential skills that will be used daily in production operations.

    The MySQL EXPLAIN QEP is significantly different from an Oracle QEP and Oracle DBAs need to understand and learn the most appropriate way to understand and navigate this information to effective performance tune a running MySQL

    21st century presentation technology at Percona Live

    After 15 years of slide show technology, I thought that we need to change the way we do presentations. And since I am advocating radical changes, I will eat my own dog food and be the first to present a MySQL session using 3D technology.

    Since watching Avatar a few years ago, I thought that using this technology would make my presentations truly amazing. However, two years ago a 3d projector was prohibitively expensive. Now, instead, it is affordable, and fits in my briefcase!

    What I needed, though, was a compelling reason for using 3d vs. traditional presentations. And I found it. As I have mentioned recently, I am working with the coolest replication technology on earth. Explaining this technology
