Can you guys make a workshop about database structuring that can scale to millions of users?

After finish building my web app, it was time to connect the database with 1.5Mil rows and lo and behold, my queries which ran fine on the 2k test data that I used in development was taking up to 30 seconds. I think database design is an aspect that is glossed over by many (like myself) who are more focused on core functionality. A db design workshop would benefit many of us, Junior devs.

It might partly be design, but it is also a factor of the database engine. I suspect you might still be using one of the free database products.

You may have just discovered one of the reasons why the big name database software products are expensive .. and why companies are willing to pay for them.
