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.
