Indexes have long been the topic of misunderstanding. When scraping for ways to boost performance surely 1 stackoverflow comment will say ‘add an index’ and so the pains begin.

This presentation nails when to use indexes, where to use which indexes and when to stay away from which indexes.

Great job!
