I wanted to update this months meeting. Dave Stokes (Community Manager from Oracle) will give a talk on optimizing queries using EXPLAIN.
I'll also give a brief talk on how to collect queries from the system to identify sub-optimal execution plans.
This should prove to be a good followup to the indexing theory discussed by Peter in the last meeting.
We'll meet at The 404 this week (across the street from the Paramount) and again will be providing food and drinks. Hope to see you there!
