Official website launched for High Performance MySQL

Monday, May 26th, 2008

We’ve launched the official website for the new High Performance MySQL book — that is, the second edition. The second edition is the long-awaited follow-up to 2004′s groundbreaking work by Jeremy Zawodny and Derek J. Balling. We’ve had some troubles with the domain that was registered for the first edition, so we’ve registered a similar domain and will set up a redirect if the original domain becomes available again.

What can you expect to find here?

  • Updates on the book’s progress. (It’s currently in final quality control, scheduled for press on June 6, 2008).
  • Code samples, links, and sample content. Rough drafts are already posted. We’ll post final versions once final quality control is finished.
  • News about any further work we do. Will there be a third edition? Maybe…
  • Anything else relevant, such as errata.

These updates may be infrequent. If you subscribe to our RSS feed, you won’t miss anything.

A note on comments and trackbacks: because we don’t have a lot of time to spend on this website, we don’t want to enable comments and trackbacks. They’d just be abused by spammers.
