WordCamp Chicago Slides: Parsing Strange

I’ve published the slides from my WordCamp Chicago talk this morning on SlideShare.net. While I had the evil hangover slot, nearly 200 fervent WordPress developers managed to make it into the (chilly) room to hear me rant about SQL grammar, inner joins and Cartesian table products, and why social graphs don’t fit data normalization rules too neatly. Some of this will make it into the 2nd edition of Professional WordPress and some is just my own personal view of data mechanics.
