Here are the slides from my talk Programmatic Queries: things you can code with SQL held on October 25th on the Percona Live event, London.
I wish to thank those who attended my talk.
The topic of the talk was irregular and, to some extent, controversial. Should one really rely on internal implementation for optimizing her queries? Sergei Golubchik was quick to suggest that even in current and coming versions of MariaDB, some things I spoke about may not hold true. I accept.
I was in urge to complete my talk within the time frame. I was happy to hear later on that my talk was well received.
There were homework to my talk. I thought I would make some contest picking the best answers, stay tuned.
