In January we encouraged you to prepare for the MySQL Connect Call for Papers, indicating how.
While dates are still subject to change, we wanted to let you know that the CFP (for MySQL Connect and Oracle OpenWorld overall) will likely open around March 18th. Remember to prepare your submissions in advance in order to swiftly submit them during the 4 to 5 weeks that the CFP will remain open!
As announced last month, MySQL Connect will this year be aligned with Oracle OpenWorld and run from Monday September 29 to Thursday October 2, 2014, in San Francisco.
The MySQL Connect and Oracle OpenWorld Calls for Papers will also open at the same time, and you will most likely be able to submit your sessions between March 4 and April 8 (dates subject to change).
While you will have 5 weeks or so to actually submit your talk proposals, you can already prepare your submissions NOW in order to be ready to submit then, and here is the key information you need to do so. In order to submit a session, you will need to provide:
We're very pleased to announce that MySQL Connect will next year take place from Monday September 29 to Thursday October 2, 2014, in San Francisco. And there will be a welcome reception on Sunday September 28 evening.
Today before Ivan’s tutorial, he told me that in the 10.0.5 virtual machine images he created, he couldn’t find the Cassandra storage engine. I told him it had to be installed separately, and this is true – you have to install some engines separately!
When you do a yum install MariaDB-server MariaDB-client like the installation instructions tell you to do, you don’t get all storage engines (so running SHOW ENGINES might have you wondering what happened to a bunch of engines). This can easily be seen by doing a yum search MariaDB. On a CentOS 6.4 server with the MariaDB 10.0 repository configured, you should see the following:

Raffi Krikorian, VP Platform Engineering at Twitter, blogged about Twitter's New Tweets per second record and how they achieved it:
"Recently, something remarkable happened on Twitter: On Saturday, August 3 in Japan, people watched an airing of Castle in the Sky, and at one moment they took to Twitter so much that we hit a one-second peak of 143,199 Tweets per second...To give you some context of how that compares to typical numbers, we normally take in more than 500 million Tweets a day which means about 5,700 Tweets a second, on average. This particular spike was around 25 times greater than our steady state."

Engine condition pushdown is a MySQL internal mechanism that is intended to avoid to send non matching rows from the storage engine to the SQL layer. This is very important when the storage engine involves traffic over the network. This mechanism was initially created to optimize MySQL Cluster (NDB) behavior. For the NDB storage engine [...]
