This talk will go over MySQL’s internal architecture and talk about what extension points exist and how to add more. Attention will be paid to what is available today, and what will be arriving in the near future. If you want a view into the server, whether to build storage engines, UDF’s, daemons, or Information Schemas, this is the talk for you.
