MySQL Conference and Expo 2010
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down
The  MySQL Users Conference and Expo 2010 scheduled for April 12 - 15, 2010 in Santa Clara is definitely a conference I highly recommend you attend if you can.  The insights, networking and knowledge gained is invaluable.  The fantastic dynamics of the open source community has to be experienced to be understood.  :)
Pythian’s Sessions at the MySQL Conference

Augusto Bott and myself had a wonderful time at April’s MySQL Conference in Santa Clara, California, and also at the coinciding MySQL Camp and Percona Performance Conference.

We presented two sessions at the conference, and we wanted to share the slides with you. The first one is called Proactive Operational Measures.

The second one is called 8 Simple Rules to Design Secure Applications.

Augusto and I promised that we would make the slides available online, so we’re sorry for the slight delay in getting them published. Enjoy!

MySQL Conference in just more than a week

Alas, I won’t be attending the conference but in reading the speaking schedules, I found several talks that I hope will be recorded and published later.  Many are directly applicable to our customers and the work we do for them, some would tickle my inner geek and a few are super interesting for what they portend for the data management space.

Scale Up, Scale Out and HA – this is always a great topic.  ever changing thanks to very creative administrators and developers solving real world problems.

Advanced Query Manipulation with MySQL Proxy - proxy has so many potential applications, i’d love to see what Kay is going to talk about.

Backups Backups Backups

I was working on a client’s server that was recently compromised.  Interestingly the attacker had replaced the OpenSSH server with “trojan” binaries that accomplished two things:

  • All logins to the system had the username/password logged in a plain-text file (this was how I discovered the problem with OpenSSH)
  • It gives the attacker a remote backdoor that is undetected to the system. Another words, when the attacker logs in using the compromised sshd they do not show up in top or ps.

This is bad enough, but it gets worse. The system had been compromised for a week before I began working on it. There is no telling how many other binaries were changed. I did find that the ssl certs had been modded. At this point there is no way that the current setup can be cleaned with any assurance that it is completely

"Starring Sakila": a Data Warehousing mini-tutorial at the MySQL UC 2009
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
Hi!

Recently I wrote about how glad I was to see two of my proposals for the upcoming MySQL Conference approved.

I am absolutely thrilled to see my third proposal has been approved as well: "Starring Sakila: data warehousing explained, illustrated and subtitled". I'm very proud to announce that I'm doing this talk together with Matt Casters, chief data integration of Pentaho and creator of the popular ETL/Data Integration suite Kettle (a.k.a Pentaho data integration).

During this 45-minute

MySQL Camp, April 2009
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Last week Giuseppe Maxia announced the Call for Papers for the 2009 MySQL Users Conference and Expo, and also announced that there would be an unconference, MySQL Camp, organized by me.

It’s true! Currently MySQL Camp is set to happen, though I am still working out details with Colin Charles and Giuseppe Maxia. We had originally talked about having MySQL Camp on Tuesday and Wednesday, but I would like to add Monday so that folks attending the conference who are not attending a tutorial have a choice on Monday. I am also looking into lunch options, since the conference venue does not have many options within walking distance.

There will be plenty of

MySQL Conference, Chapter 2
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The team just finished our second successful MySQL Con. Many thanks to Marten & Zack and all the folks at O’Reilly that put on such a great conference.

This year definitely had a different feel, and of course that had a lot to do with Sun’s influence. It felt like it was almost a new event, a chapter 2 for MySQL, and its ecosystem of vendors and customers. There were more people - I don’t know exact numbers, but it felt appeared to be twice as packed. The exhibit hall was the same, but we took up a bit more space than last year and certainly there were much fancier booths - ours included! We even gave away multiple prizes this year - our fun 8-ball tshirts, and a couple remote control helicopters. Scott Baird and Mike Hogan were the lucky winners this year.

Liveblogging: A Match Made in Heaven? The Social Graph and the Database
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Jeff Rothschild of Facebook’s “A Match Made in Heaven? The Social Graph and the Database”

Taking a look at the social graph and what it means for the database.

The social graph:

  • At it’s heart it’s about people and their connections.
  • Learning about people who are in your world.
  • Can be a powerful tool for accelerating the use of an application.

“The social graph has transformed a seemingly simple application such as photos into something tremendously more powerful.” We’re interested about what people are saying about us, and about our friends. Social applications are compelling.

Facebook users blew through the estimate for 6 months of storage in 6 weeks. It is serving 250,000 photos per second at peak time, not

“Identity helps you predict behavior.”

“Identity is who you are.”

“Identity is also what you like.”

“Identity enables you to uniquely identify somebody.”

“There are things that other people say about you, too.”

“Modern identity is about photo IDs so you can prove your identity.”

No conference for me, *sniff*
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

*Sigh*, well I won't be making it out to the conference this year:  My wife is due any day now with our third child.  Scheduling to fly to California next week just doesn't seem like it falls under the category of "supporting my wife."  
Top ten things I'll miss about the mysql conference 2008:

  • How replication is dead
  • Why 5.1 isn't stable yet
  • How wonderful Sun/Maria/Falcon/Cluster/6.x/Proxy is
  • Grilling Heikki about Innodb internals and bottlenecks
  • Wringing more information about high performance MySQL from Paul Tuckfield
  • The food!
  • Vendor / O'Reilly Swag
  • How great MySQL will run on Sun hardware
  • Conference Day 3 daze -- that part of the conference where your eyes start to glaze over. 
  • Getting really, really sick of talking about MySQL
  • Have fun everyone, see you next year!
