BYOD; For this meetup its recommended to bring your own laptop, preferably with linux installed.
Stuart Davey from the MySQL team at Oracle will host an interactive session about document store in MySQL 8.
The focus of the MySQL session shall be on MySQL 8.0 Document Store. MySQL Document Store allows developers to work with SQL relational tables and schema-less JSON collections. To make that possible MySQL has created the X Dev API which puts a strong focus on CRUD by providing a fluent API allowing you to work with JSON documents in a natural way. The X Protocol is a highly extensible and is both optimized for CRUD as well as SQL API operations.
The agenda for the session will be theory followed by a live demonstration, followed by a tutorial. The tutorial will be the attendees opportunity to put into practice what has been taught by developing a small PHP application that utilizes the X Dev API and Document Store. If you wish to take part in the tutorial please bring a laptop and a sense of humour because it’s our intention to keep the session informal and fun!
