A panel on “Future Perfect: The Road Ahead for MySQL”
Brian Aker (HP), Paul Mikesell (Clustrix), Sundar Raghavan (Amazon), Slavik Markovich (McAffee), Ori Hernstadt (Akiban)
If there’s one common theme to this panel, and indeed, this whole conference, it is “We’re hiring!” It is amazing how much talent there is at the conference this year and yet it isn’t enough. Pythian is hiring as well of course: http://bit.ly/pythianjobs
Interesting differenciation between the mindset of Oracle from MySQL from Brian Aker: database as a service, which is something MySQL seems to be getting to. It comes with its own problems especially around trust levels which will lead to more thinking around data security (rather than just database security)
MySQL vs. NoSQL. Different tools for different jobs
Security is definitely a big topic these days other than performance.
