Sick and tired of "X technology is only good for starting out; after you do, move to Y"? Good news - you don’t need to move away, you just need to get in further! In this talk, you'll learn about improvements in the newest version of the most used database in the world. What are Window Functions? How do you use CTEs? How can the new default encoding help me and what should I look for when upgrading versions?

Who are you?

A thorough and engaging overview of the cool new features in MySQL; it can’t be easy to make such dry content interesting for a talk of this length but Gabi achieved this.

The only downside was that I struggled to read the SQL for the demos due to the text size, even though I was sat close to one of the side screens. Larger text would be useful for next time, please!

A really great talk brilliantly presented by Gabi, I learnt a lot about some of the newer features available in MySQL 8 especially the analytical ones.

It would have been nice if the presentation perhaps touched on the performance differences between past major versions and if there was a little time for Q&A at the end to ask about this perhaps.

Great talk overall. I liked that there was a decent amount of hands-on examples along with the theory.

I use mostly PostgreSQL nowadays, but I found the new SQL standard features really interesting. I can certainly see some places where these new features can be applied to our projects.

A solid technical talk, I learnt things and I thought the code examples were very well executed.
