This session will discuss a few very generic SQL internals at a very high level perspective and a very high pace. You’ll learn how rows are stored, how indexes work, what’s B-tree and why’s everyone using it, how queries get executed inside the server, when can they get slow and why the optimizer isn’t your friend sometimes, and how to make those queries fast again.
Andrew is the author of Sphinx, an open-source full-text search engine designed especially for indexing databases.
From humble beginnings focused on storing and maintaining data in MySQL. Richard, matriculated to Sphinx Search where he’s learned the value of synthesizing mountains of text and attributes into meaning for individuals to consume.
