This time our speaker will be Morgan Tocker and he is talking about MySQL 5.7 and JSON.

With the newly added JSON support in MySQL, you can combine the flexibility of NoSQL with the strength of a relational database. In this session, Morgan will explain the new JSON datatype, and the new set of functions for handling JSON documents, available storage and indexing options. In addition, he will present benchmarks showing how much one can expect from the MySQL server in different use case scenarios.

Morgan rejoined the MySQL team at Oracle in 2013 as MySQL Community Manager, having previously worked for MySQL and Sun Microsystems. He blogs from (, and especially likes the new features in MySQL that make operations life easier.

There will be pizza and beverages provided in co-operation with Solinor Oy and Oracle. :-)

Welcome to learn and have fun in a nice, relaxed atmosphere!
