Talk: What every web developer should know about database optimization

Most developers are developers, not DBAs, yet many smaller companies have inadequate database experience in-house. This is largely because databases like MySQL and PostgreSQL don’t necessarily require a full-time DBA to administer. It’s become more important for developers at smaller companies to have some basic knowledge of how to keep their database happy.
