To celebrate the publishing of my new book MySQL 8 Query Performance Tuning, the Apress team invited me (thanks Jonathan and Liz) to write a post for the Apress blog. I decided to write about my top six best practices:
- Be wary of best practices
- Work methodically
- Consider the full stack
- Make small, incremental changes
- Understand the change
Yes, my first best practice is to be wary of best practices. Read why I added that and the other best practices at MySQL Performance Tuning Best Practices.
