We will discuss upgrade from MySQL 5.7 to MySQL 8.0 (8.0.18), going from legacy metadata storage to a transactional data dictionary. MySQL 8.0 enables automation of upgrade, and major advances in upgrade speed and reliability. MySQL 8.0 also have new tools to help DBAs with the upgrade process, so we will discuss the MySQL upgrade checker.

MySQL 8.0 has a pluggable error log. We will talk about the traditional error logger and the JSON error logger, which empowers users with advanced filtering.
