MySQL schema and query optimization

I have used and administered MySQL for 15 years. As both a developer and a system administrator, I have experience with all aspects of MySQL. Using my knowledge of how the various MySQL storage engines operate, I am able to optimize schemas and queries to get the most out of your MySQL installation. I have dealt with scalability challenges at each of the companies I have worked for.
