"But 63 slides is too much" has been the initial reply to the draft of tomorrows Top 10 MySQL Tips and Mistakes for PHP Developers web presentation (Tuesday, September 25, 2012: 10:00 CET). SQL injection, security and access control, monitoring for indexing and tuning, choosing adequate data types, character sets, how your web application speaks UTF8 correctly, types of connections and their performance properties as well as planning for tomorrow are too important to allow for less slides, Johannes Schlueter and I thought.
Beginners will be presented with a list of pitfalls to avoid. Advanced users profit from the presentation of the latest news put in context. And, of course, we will answer questions. Whoever of us is not speaking at a time is happy to answer your questions in the chat.
Will we make it to go through 62 slides in 60 minutes? Given that its not the first presentation for either of us I am optimistic.
