New MySQL 5.6 Features by Oli Sennhauser
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

First talk at FOSDEM MySQL Devroom by Oli Sennhauser, of FromDual. Quick notes/liveblog of the talk, plus links from a quick search.

New Release Model: starts with at least in beta quality, milestone releases are RC quality (every 3-6 months), between milestones new features are allowed, GA releases every 12-18 months, no more than 2 releases in active support. There is also MySQL Labs, in where features can make it into a release model, but not necessarily.

Oli’s guess: MySQL 5.6 GA in April 2012 (Collaborate) or June 2012. As a consequence, MySQL 5.0 and MySQL 5.1 will be EOL probably by April this year.

New improvements in partitioning: explicit partition selection, exchanging partitions (good for ETL jobs).

New improvements in InnoDB: InnoDB

MariaDB/MySQL users in Paris & Brussels

I’m about to head to Paris to present at the February meetup of the MySQL User Group in Paris, France. It happens 1st February from 6-8pm at the Patricks Irish Pub. Its free to attend, and I understand that SkySQL keeps this event afloat.

I’m also heading to my first FOSDEM right afterwards and will definitely hang out at the MySQL & Friends Devroom. There is an amazing lineup of speakers, with all talks being about 25-30 minutes, it looks like it is going to be a lot of fun. To boot, Michael “Monty” Widenius will also be there, so expect lots of Salmiakkikossu.

    Fosdem 2010 was my 10th fosdem Edition (including the first OSDEM)
    As every year Fosdem suffered even more from it's own success.

    On Friday evening ther was the obligatory Beer event... however as people need to eat to .. the Devops crowd fled the scene

    I had made reservations for a 20 something group and with the CentOS crowd joining us (as there was some overlap anyhow) we were 25 when we arrived in the restaurant .

    Dinner and Discussions were great .. I learned about some new projects and we had some insightfull dicussions on how fat your thin foil should be ...

    After dinner we went back to the Beer Event were lots of Free Beer was tasted ...

    Multi-Master Manager for MySQL – FOSDEM 2010
    +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    The next presentation by Piotr Biel from Percona was on Multi-Master Manager for MySQL.

    The introduction included a discussion of the popular MySQL HA solutions including:

    • MySQL Master-slave replication with failover
    • MMM managed bi-directional replication
    • Heartbeat/SAN
    • Heartbeat/DRBD
    • NDB Cluster

    A key problem that was clarified in the talk is the discussion of Multi-Master and this IS NOT master-master. You only write to a single node. With MySQL is this critical because MySQL replication does not manage collision detection.

    The MMM Cluster Elements are:

    • monitoring node
    • database nodes

    And the Application Components are:

    • mon
    • agent
    • angel

    MMM works with 3 layers.

    MySQL Developers Room at FOSDEM 2010

    I am in Brussels, waiting to attend FOSDEM 2010, one of the biggest open source gatherings in Europe, taking place this weekend in Brussels.
    On Sunday, there is a Developers Room for MySQL and Friends, with 14 talks from open source professionals coming from Europe and North America.

    The novelty of this round of talks is that thy will be 20 minutes long, rather than 1 hour. This will force all presenters to be more cautious about their timing, and to concentrate their talks on the essential. Even the experienced ones, who have given the same talk several times, will have to make an effort to come to the point in less time. The idea cam from reading

    The tracks of this year's "MySQL & Friends" Developer Room at FOSDEM 2010 have now been scheduled - please check the Wiki page for details on the talks as well as some background information about the speakers. This info should soon be available via the FOSDEM conference system as well. We had some last-minute changes and we actually managed to schedule two more talks due to a small glitch in the initial calculation. The topics look very interesting, we hope that we can provide some valuable information for developers, users as well as MySQL DBAs!

    One of our speakers (Kris Buytaert) suggested to arrange a joint dinner for Saturday evening, which is indeed a good idea! Thankfully he also volunteered

    FOSDEM 2010: Python sneaks into the MySQL DevRoom!
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    FOSDEM 2010, Sunday 7 February, the MySQL Developer Room packed with 12 talks! And this year we serve Python just before the lunch break.

    In 20 minutes I'll try to give an overview of the drivers currently available for connecting your Python applications with MySQL. Incase you wonder, this will not evolve around MySQL Connector/Python alone!

    We'll also go over some frameworks and tools like SQLAlchemy.

    20 minutes, it's not much, but should be enough. I hope to get a similar talk accepted for the MySQL Conference&Expo 2010.

    We are happy to announce the selected sessions for our "MySQL and Friends" developer room at FOSDEM 2010 in Brussels, Belgium. It will take place on Sunday, 7th of February from 9:00-17:00 in Room AW1.121.

    In total, we received 20 submissions from 15 speakers. We'd like to thank them very much for their great proposals!

    As we only have 12 speaking slots (20 mins each) available that day, we first needed to perform a selection process. Unfortunately there wasn't enough time to perform a full-blown voting process that involved the community at large. Since we didn't want to do this in a completely closed committee, we decided to involve all speakers that submitted a talk in this.

    After this voting process, the final candidates

    A Happy New Year to all of you! About a month ago we posted our initial Call for Papers for the MySQL Developer Room at FOSDEM 2010 in Brussels, Belgium.

    The 10th edition of Fosdem is getting closer, yes .. I said 10 ,10 decimal that means ten, not two :)

    It's kinda hard to imagine that this is actually going to be my 10th fosdem , it feels weird ..

    Anyhow.. Lenz just announced a call for participation for the MySQL and Friends devroom.

    I`m guessing a talk on .LolSQL might be a good fit for the "and Friends" part.
