Well, my presentation on MySQL’s FULLTEXT indexes is all over now. I actually managed to fill the full 45 minutes with information on how to use FULLTEXT indexes. You can check out the source code as well.
I was pretty scared to present once I found out that MySQL UC is a huge conference filled with people that are way smarter than I am. Also, the room where I was presenting was huge. Pretty intimidating for sure, but it all went well for the most part with very few complaints from the audience.
Loved the presentation on FullText at the user conference. I just wish they had given you a few hours to get more in depth. But hey, I’ll take what I can get, and use the provided materials to figure out how to maximize the effectiveness of the fulltext search for a new app I’m developing.
I’d like to see a similar presentation next year.
