Had an engineer tell me one time that there is absolutely no structural value in concrete mesh, all it does is hold the concrete together after it breaks.
Few things I had done for my shop floor, at each door opening I went with a thickened edge. I dug a 12 wide by 12 deep trench.
On each side of the 6 x 12 posts the concrete crew nailed HTT-16 clips to tie the slab to the post. But one time I seen a set of blue prints for a pole barn there was a detail for drilling a hole through the posts and sticking a # 4 bar through the hole and bending it back at about 45 degrees into the slab area with about 3-feet long tails.
Do yourself a big favor, don't forget expansion joints!

One thing I forgot to mention. If you hire out the placing of your slab, guys who do flat work for a living love to pour concrete wet! Makes it easier on them, so watch the slump of the concrete! Water just kills the strength of concrete! Then again water is your friend during the cure process. This time of year it's probably not a big deal, but when the weather warms up, you really want to keep the slab as wet as possible! On job sites it is required to cover a pour with white visqueen or burlap fabric.
