Special thanks to all those who came out for the MySQL Workbench Tutorial and Workshop sessions, I hope they were of use to you.

The materials are now online. A PDF of the slides is available here and a video of the slides and speaker is available here. These materials are also listed on my Presentations page.

Please note that the video is RTSP streaming MP4, allowing you to jump around the video at will. You’ll need Quicktime, VLC or another appropriate player to view it. I’m trying something new with the built in camera on my laptop, providing a video image of the speaker along with the slides. Let me know what you think.

Using the Infobright Community Edition for event log storage
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Apart from the primary "here's how we ended up using Infobright for data warehousing and how is that working out" topic I'm going to discuss in my MySQL Conf presentation I'll touch on another application, the use of Infobright's open-source Community Edition server for collection and storage of event logs. This is a system we've implemented in the past couple of months to solve a number of data management problems that were gradually becoming problematic for our infrastructure.

We've traditionally stored structured event log data in databases for ease of management. Since Habbo uses MySQL for most everything else, putting the log tables in the same databases was pretty natural. However, there are significant problems

What would you like to hear from me in MySQL Conf?
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I'm going to be talking in MySQL Conf 2009 about our business intelligence and data warehousing solutions for Habbo. Since this blog is syndicated on Planet MySQL, and I presume many of the people going to the conference read it, here's a question: would you like to hear about the why's of our technology selection (eg, IT management level questions), the techniques we use for analysis (for the BI analyst or startup technologist), or about the nuts and bolts of the database implementation itself (for the DBAs in the crowd)? I'm going to be touching on all three aspects, perhaps more, but can and will focus on one of the areas in more detail.

MySQL@FOSDEM 2009: a summary
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Now that FOSDEM 2009 in Brussels, Belgium is over, it's about time for a conclusion/summary. I've been to FOSDEM for about five times as both an attendee and speaker, but this year I was much more involved. On Saturday, I gave a lightning talk about "Why you should use Bazaar for maintaining your OSS project". On Sunday, I gave a talk about "MySQL High Availability Solutions" in the main conference track. Both went fairly well and there was good feedback from audience. I've uploaded the slides for both talks to the FOSDEM 2009 page on

Alex Gorbachev at Oracle Open World 2008: Under the Hood of Oracle Clusterware
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

If a MySQL DBA from Pythian goes to Oracle Open World, it would be a shame not to send an Oracle bloke, so there I am — presenting a 90-minute session on the first day of the OOW 08 entitled Under the Hood of Oracle Clusterware.

I gave it during RAC Attack in Chicago and I’m pretty satisfied with how it went, so there should be no significant changes to the presentation. The session is in “User Group Forum,” thanks to RAC SIG and Dan Norris.

+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
A big thank you to all those who attended the memcached webinar today on which I was a panelist. I was told that there were more than 560 registrants.

The feedback I received directly and indirectly shows that there is a lot of interest about memcached. In the future, I hope to work again with MySQL/Sun on more memcached related webinars.

If you attended the webinar and have some suggestions, comments or questions, please contact me at fmashraqi at yahoo dot com or post a comment on this blog.

Special thanks to Jimmy Guerrero, Monty Taylor, Rich Taylor, Edwin DeSouza and Alex Roedling for their hard work in arranging the webinar. Also thanks to Brian Aker, Matt Ingenthron and Trond Norbye for their assistance at various phases.

MySQL UC 2008 Presentations
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Since I wasn’t able to get to this year’s MySQL UC (employer change caused problems with US visa obtaining and I didn’t get visa in time) I’m really interested in all presentations people are posting after their sessions. I decided to collect them all in one place and would like to share with others - maybe someone will find it interesting to read what people have to say about many interesting aspects of MySQL usage.

So, I’ve created a folder in my Scribd.com account which you could use (and track using RSS readers) to find out what interesting presentations were published. You can use either my account or mysqluc08 folder there. One more possible option to track mysqluc
