The April Boston MySQL Meetup's topic has CHANGED! Jay Pipes (co-author of Pro MySQL) is in town and will speak about "Performance Tuning Best Practices". This is the workshop he'll be giving at the MySQL Users Conference, so if you can't go don't miss this meetup!

Description of the workshop: Learn where to best focus your attention when tuning the performance of your applications and database servers, and how to effectively find the "low hanging fruit" on the tree of bottlenecks. It's not rocket science, but with a bit of acquired skill and experience, and of course good habits, you too can do this magic! Jay Pipes is MySQL's Community Relations Manager for North America.

We will be meeting on MIT campus, close to the Kendall stop on the Red Line (subway). There is also plenty of free parking -- you can park in ANY MIT lot after 3 pm, even if it says "parking by permit only". We are in building E51, room 372.

Here is the URL for the MIT Map with the location of this building: (
