MySQL Query Optimization

Wish you were a MySQL ninja? Think only DBAs should worry about query optimization? Want to know what happens behind the scenes when you SELECT foo FROM bar?

Now more than ever, developers need to understand SQL performance to keep web pages up to date. At Achievers, our dev team dedicates themselves to building a web app that performs blazingly fast. Therefore, we constantly investigate all the queries that execute in our database to fine-tune them for optimal performance.

In this Achievers Tech Talk, CTO Dr. Aris Zakinthinos delivers a highly technical, hands-on presentation on optimizing MySQL queries. From using the “explain” function, to truly understanding indexes, this is relevant to any developer who interacts with a database.
