Sign up for our best practices webinar on how to upgrade to MySQL 5.7

Join us on Tuesday, March 15th for this new webinar on best practices for upgrading to MySQL 5.7 led by Krzysztof Książek, Senior Support Engineer at Severalnines.

MySQL 5.7 has been around for a while now, and if you haven’t done so yet, it’s probably about time to start thinking about upgrading. There are a few things to keep in mind when planning an upgrade, such as important changes between versions 5.6 and 5.7 as well as detailed testing that needs to precede any upgrade process. Amongst other things, we’ll look at how to best research, prepare and perform such tests before the time comes to finally start the upgrade.
