Released late 2015 MySQL 5.7 is the current version of the world's most popular open source database. Among improvements in performance and scalability it brought notable new features, like a JSON datatype and generated columns. In addition MySQL 5.7.12 added a new Document Store feature for MySQL, enabling an entirely new category of use cases for managing data. The Document Store functionality expands on that with a Server plugin, a new API and a suite of new components designed to make MySQL accessible for users who are not familiar with the SQL language or prefer a schemaless data store. In this session you can learn how to make use of these new features for current and future applications.
