TiDB is an open source distributed scalable hybrid transactional
and analytical processing (HTAP) database built by PingCAP. It also
speaks the MySQL protocol and uses RocksDB as the underlying storage

This talk provides an introduction and overview of TiDB, tailored for
those with a strong background in MySQL. I will use MySQL as an
example to explain various implementation details of TiDB, and
translate terminology to MySQL/InnoDB terms.

Speaker Bio:

Morgan Tocker is a Senior Product and Community Manager at PingCAP,
the company behind TiDB. He was previously the Product Manager for
the MySQL Server at Oracle.
