MySQL Conference 2012 Day 0
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Wow! A lot has changed since the last MySQL conference I blogged about in 2007.

MySQL has been acquired twice: once as MySQL by Sun and the second time around bundled with Sun when Oracle bought Sun. The conference is no longer organized by O’Reilly but by Percona. And the MySQL database itself has changed — we were talking about new features in MySQL 5.1, which wasn’t released yet, along with Falcon (where did it go?). 5.1 has long since been released as has 5.5, and we’re now talking about 5.6 instead of 6.0. There was no “Cloud” on the horizon, nor was …

sphinx, sphinx_snippets() & MySQL 5.5
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I've written a patch which completes Sphinx's integration with MySQL 5.5.

However, to my disdain, I've found out that it only partially work: the sphinx_snippets() user defined function is not included within the plugin library. After some quick poking I discovered that it was not added to the build, and when added, would not compile.

I rely on …

To me, the changes that are being announced today compare favorably to reaching Kettle version 1.0 some 9 years ago, or reaching version 2.0 with plugin support or even open sourcing Kettle itself…

First of all…

Pentaho is again open sourcing an important piece of software.  Today we’re bringing all big data related software to you as open source …

Documentation in SQL: CALL for help()
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Documentation is an important part of any project. On the projects I maintain I put a lot of effort on documentation, and, frankly, the majority of time spent on my projects is on documentation.

The matter of keeping the documentation faithful is a topic of interest. I'd like to outline a few documentation bundling possibilities, and the present the coming new documentation method for common_schema. I'll talk about any bundling that is NOT man pages.

High level: web docs

This is the initial method of documentation I used for  …
