[UPHPU] MySQL questions?

I don't know -- my impression is that we have all levels of php
experience among list members, and even meeting attendees. It's
difficult to know at what level to present, because inevitably you'll
exclude some group or be redundant for another group. I suppose that's
why many presenters ask the list what we want taught to us.

Having said that, I second your topic suggestions. :)

It is probably safe to assume that most PHPers are already somewhat 
familiar with MySQL.  Maybe we should skip the most basic aspects of the

DB and get right into the meaty stuff.  My main interests would be:

Database optimizations - both server and query related
Clustering / High Availability
Advanced SQL - specifically JOINS

My $0.02 - no change necessary.
