Yesterday, I did something I do only about 2-3 times a year, but would like to do more. I lead a Tech Talk which went very well.
It was a discussion on how to scale MySQL so that you can support 10-100x your current traffic load. Adding more webservers is a non-trivial task, but I tell ya, you’ve got to know your stuff to make sure that your Databases are able to handle a huge traffic onslaught.
Here’s the link to the talk I presented.
