I had a great time speaking about partitioning at the MySQL conference this week.
Special thanks go out to Mattias Jonsson as well for helping answer some of the questions afterwards. The room was packed - which makes me excited for the future of MySQL partitioning!
I hope everyone got something out of the session, and I'd gladly welcome any comments (positive or constructive).
I plan on doing some comparisons in the next few weeks between MySQL partitioning and PostgreSQL partitioning... (I'll let you all know what I like and don't like).
