MySQL Conference and Expo 2013 feelings (#perconalive)

I wasn’t at the MySQL Conference this year but it was very nice to follow this event from Paris.
Of course I didn’t feel the general atmosphere by visiting booths or met fabulous people.
But it was a great opportunity to offer you a live post about the conference with an external point of view.

Twitter, RSS feeds (yes Google, I still use RSS), Planet MySQL and infiltrators were my best friends during this crazy week.

I would like to summarize the major announcements and events occurs during this tenth edition.
 

Oracle at Percona Live!

 
Yes, Oracle was at Percona Live 2013 and it was for the best.
I invite you to watch this keynote from …

Percona Live 2013 keynotes: followup questions and discussion

Here are a few questions remained open for me from Percona Live 2013 about things that have been said during keynotes; I will appreciate a discussion on comments. Here goes:

Question #1

Brian Aker (HP) asks Simone Brunozzi (Amazon) what the underlying technology for DynamoDB is. Simone says can't disclose. Brian says: "it's MySQL!!". Simone says: "can't disclose". Brian insists: "it's MySQL!!"

Seriously? I will be very much surprised to learn that DynamoDB uses MySQL; it doesn't make sense to me. Why would Brian Aker say that though? Did he just mean to tease Simone or is there something I just don't get?

(Yes, Brian?)

Question #2

common_schema booth on Percona Live 2013

common_schema booth in Percona Live 2013 (someone left their soup on our table)

Allen Kinnard

Yay! I got a booth!

I confess it was mostly deserted. My hero Allen Kinnard, whom I've never met before, was kind enough to volunteer to occupy the booth.
So between him and me, both of course also looking to visit other booths and talk to people, the common_schema booth was only moderately attended.

Well, this was the DotOrg Pavilion: free booths for free & open source projects (e.g. OpenStack, PhpMyAdmin, etc.).
We both did our best to explain common_schema to the visitors.

The booth was actually titled "common_schema & openark-kit". However I don't …

Slides from my talk: common_schema, DBA's Framework for MySQL

I've just uploaded the slides from my talk: common_schema: DBA's framework for MySQL

My talk was well attended, and I was fortunate to have a warm and engaged audience. Thank you to all those who attended, and thank you for those who provided feedback! Was happy to be able to present my work a great group of people.

You can find my slide either on Percona Live's website, or on Slideshare, as well as embedded right here.

I set two aims to my talk:

  1. To have the audience know how to download and install …

Impressions from Percona Live 2013

At the airport, trying to sum up my impressions from Percona Live 2013 conference in Santa Clara.

Woo! Hard to sum up four excellent days. Shall I review the great talks I've been to? The keynotes? The well organized events?

You know what, skip it. There was ONE thing that overshadowed everything. It was the ONE thing for me that was the pure essence of the conference and its greatest joy:

Meeting and talking to a great many great people!

I was fortunate to meet up with so many people; none that I planned; things just went in such way that I engaged in so many conversations with so many people. I found myself talking about hamsters, peacocks, living in the village, living in the city, working from home, commute, relocation, working with your spouse, life in Israel, life in Argentina, prisons in the US, having many children, gun control, politics (heaven forbid!), fruit, vegetables, breakfasts, …

Speaking at Percona Live 2013: common_schema, lightning talks

In two weeks time I will be giving these talks at Percona Live:

  • common_schema: DBA's framework for MySQL: an introduction to common_schema, my evolving server side solutions project. This will be a revised version of the talk I gave at Percona Live London; I have felt some weaknesses during that talk, which I've thrown out, letting room for cool stuff. I will discuss common_schema's various views, interesting and useful routines, the power of QueryScript, and a brief intro to the newcomer

Assistance wanted: DotOrg Pavilion on Percona Live 2013

I'm looking for assistance in manning a DotOrg Pavilion on the upcoming Percona Live conference in Santa Clara.

As you may or may not know, free and open source projects are eligible to ask for a free booth on the Expo hall. This is a good chance to promote one's project.

Of course, someone must stand behind the counter and answer [technical] questions.

I should like to have a booth for common_schema & openark-kit, but am limited in resources -- namely the number of bodies I can occupy simultaneously, just one at this time. Along with some duties I have throughout the conference I do not expect to be …
