Joomla!, being one of the top content management systems in the world, is constantly faced with stiff competition. Often times what is considered important about any CMS are the enhancements and the feature sets a specific CMS has. There is another (sometimes overlooked) important fact which we need to pay attention to as we consider the end-user’s needs, which is the speed of the software. This depends on a multitude of factors but the top-most bottleneck is often the database management system and the way we use it to store and retrieve data.

SQL Optimization Working Group

Joomla!, being one of the top content management systems in the world, is constantly faced with stiff competition. Often times what is considered important about any CMS are the enhancements and the feature sets a specific CMS has. There is another (sometimes overlooked) important fact which we need to pay attention to as we consider the end-user’s needs, which is the speed of the software. This depends on a multitude of factors but the top-most bottleneck is often the database management system and the way we use it to store and retrieve data.

In the SQL optimization working group we are mainly focused on the above mentioned fact. Our vision is to provide the community a faster way in which the CMS interacts with the DB by reducing the database management system based overheads.
