    It was great. I learned alot, and how timely, considering this week was also Wordpress 10 years. Great way to wrap up what I call "open source week"! I thought the opener to the evening was hilarious. Nice touch!

    'twas SQL and static views
    Did sort and compile in the slave
    All Memcached were the normal rows
    And the backups, outraged

    Looking forward to be in New York on Thursday and meet as many MySQL/MariaDB users as possible!
    Please take with you wishes for future MariaDB/MySQL features so that we can discuss these!
