Distributed processing doesn't always require learning completely new methods. See how we solved an intense computation problem which was over-taxing our main database by distributing it across multiple machines, using only MySQL built-in functionality. No Map/Reduce. No external frameworks. It's simple -- and it works well, too! Read more.

Query reviews are a great way to find potentially slow queries before they become a problem. A query review is like a code review, except instead of reviewing code, queries are reviewed. This presentation will show you how to use the Maatkit tool mk-query-digest to create a digest of queries. This digest can be a one-off report, or it can be saved to a database table. Read more.
