MySQL Tour Munich

2016-01-24 12:23:00

In February my colleague Morgan Tocker will travel through Europe and talk about MySQL 5.7, which recently went GA.

In Munich we're having a meeting for PHPers and other Web developers, where Morgan will talk about MySQL and JSON and I'll also be around.

Summary of the talk:

With the newly added JSON support in MySQL, you can combine the flexibility of NoSQL with the strength of a relational database. In this session, Morgan will explain the new JSON datatype, and the new set of functions for handling JSON documents, available storage and indexing options. In addition, he will present benchmarks showing how much one can expect from the MySQL server in different use case scenarios.

About Morgan: Morgan rejoined the MySQL team at Oracle in 2013 as MySQL Community Manager, having previously worked for MySQL and Sun Microsystems. He blogs from, and especially likes the new features in MySQL that make operations life easier.

The meeting will be held at Oracle's Munich Office, Meeting Room Van Gogh, Ground floor building B, Riesstr. 25 (close to underground station Olympiaeinkaufszentrum) on February 4th at 18:30. Open for anybody interested.
