MySQL University: Scalability by design - coding for systems with large
CPU counts

This Thursday, we're continuing our series of sessions on MySQL
performance measuring and improvements with Richard Smith's presentation
titled Scalability by Design - Coding for Systems With Large CPU Counts.
Richard works in the Performance and Applications Engineering department
at Sun Microsystems, so again, expect to get some deep insights into the
inner workings of the MySQL Server.

Richard is based in Australia, so note that this session will take place
in the morning (Europe) or evening (APAC), respectively.

For MySQL University sessions, point your browser to this page:

http://webmeeting.dimdim.com/portal/JoinForm.action?confKey=mysqluniversity

You need a browser with a working Flash plugin. You may register for a
Dimdim account, but you don't have to.

MySQL University is a free educational online program for
engineers/developers. MySQL University sessions are open to anyone, not
just Sun employees. Sessions are recorded (slides and audio), so if you
can't attend the live session you can look at the recording anytime
after the session.

Here's the schedule for the upcoming weeks (see
http://forge.mysql.com/wiki/MySQL_University for a better format of this

The session address (Dimdim URL) for all sessions is:

http://webmeeting.dimdim.com/portal/JoinForm.action?confKey=mysqluniversity

Please bookmark this address, since it will remain valid for all future
MySQL University sessions. Remember, though, that the meeting room will
open only 15 minutes before the session starts.

Dimdim is the conferencing system we're using for MySQL University
sessions. It provides integrated voice streaming, chat, whiteboard,
session recording (slides and voice), and more. All you need to do to
attend MySQL University sessions is point your browser to the address
given above.

All MySQL University sessions are recorded, that is, slides and voice
can be viewed as a Flash file (.flv). You can find those recordings on
the respective MySQL University session pages which are listed on the
MySQL University home page:
