MySQL Sandbox at the OTN MySQL Developers day in Paris, March 21st
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down
On March 21st I will be in Paris, to attend the OTN MySQL Developers Day. Oracle is organizing these events all over the world, and although the majority are in the US, some of them are touching the good old European continent. Previous events were an all-Oracle show. Recently, the MySQL Community team has been asking for cooperation from the community, and in such capacity I am also presenting at the event, on the topic of testing early releases of MySQL in a sandbox. Of course, this is one of my favorite topics, but it is quite appropriate in this period, when Oracle has released a whole lot of preview features in its MySQL Labs. Which is another favorite topic of mine, since I was the one who  [Read more...]
Summary Tables with MySQL
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down
I was recently talking with a few people and the concept of summary tables came up as solutions for them. The issue is, they never thought of it. Hopefully this post will help them as well as others.
Summary Tables are not a new concept. They are exactly what they sound like, basically summary of existing data. Aggregated tables, materialized views and summary tables are very dominate in data warehouses. You can also take advantage of these concepts as part of your reporting systems as well.
So summary tables are real tables. So you can take advantage of indexes and etc with them. In the examples I am using, I consider them more of a summary table than aggregated tables . Depending on your application and needs it could grow into more of an aggregated tables and or materialized views situation.
How you separate your data and tables is dependent on your reporting and

2011, A great year for MySQL in review...
+11 Vote Up -0Vote Down
I see so many posts on what happened to company X, product Y and dream Z that I couldn't resist the temptation to summarize this great year for MySQL. At the end of 2010, Oracle did an announcement we were all waiting for: MySQL 5.5 is GA! Another year has passed since then and it's time to reflect on what has been done.

I know this is a long post. I tried to rewrite it at least 10 times to make it shorter, but I couldn't condense the list. Hence, I wrote a summary in the beginning for those who don't want to read it all.

I believe that 2011 was an exceptional year for MySQL and I really enjoy being part of this team. I wish all of us a lot of success and fun in the years to come!

Read the original article at Seattle Web Tech Meetup Nov 21

I'll be one of two speakers at the next Seattle Web Technology Bi-Weekly Meet up on Nov 21 at the Citrus Lounge.

They've sexed it up a little by calling it a face-off between Windows Azure and Amazon EC2  (no prizes for guessing which side I represent) but really it's going to be a primer on the Platform-as-a service and Infrastructure-as-a-service models. I expect some lively discussions during Q&A.

MySQL User Conference: InnoDB vs NDB – Let the fight begin!
+2 Vote Up -2Vote Down

While wearing my hat of Sales Engineer, I have been asked several times what is the difference between InnoDB and MySQL Cluster/NDB and when it makes sense to use one storage engine or the other. Some may probably think that this is a trivial question: the two engines are so different that there is really no point to compare them. The reality is not so clear though: there are many situations where I have found InnoDB stretched to the point where MySQL Cluster would have been a perfect fit, and other occasions were users implemented a solution based on MySQL Cluster and InnoDB would have been the perfect choice.

This is the reason behind my talk at the MySQL User Conference in Santa Clara: InnoDB vs NDB. I will co-present the session with my good old friend and ex-colleague Johan Andersson – if you know Johan, you may guess who will take

Conferences selling out forget about the rest of the world
+1 Vote Up -1Vote Down

2011 seems to be a good year for both Google I/O and Apple’s WWDC. Google I/O sold out in 59 minutes and Apple’s WWDC sold out in under 10 hours. They’re both held at the Moscone Center and I guess the caps for attendance is usually set at about 4,000-5,000 attendees.

My only beef with this is that the rest of the world is forgotten. It’s only good for the developer sitting in North America (or a similar timezone). In fact folk that need to get corporate approval are probably also forgotten. Launching at 9 or 10am PST is past midnight in China and Singapore for example. Its even later in Japan. What about developers sitting in Sydney &

Testing LAMP Applications
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I will present on "Testing LAMP Applications" at the O'Reilly MySQL Conference & Expo 2011:

Proper interaction with relational databases is incredibly important in most pieces of software. The importance of this interaction is underscored by the fact that many software architectures have at least one entire layer or system devoted to data persistence and data loading. When dealing with critical data in enterprise level applications it becomes even more important to make sure your data is being stored and retrieved correctly.

As responsible developers, one of our goals should be to test database interaction and test it well. To help achieve this goal, we will take a close look at tools and

I’ll be going to foss.in this year, and am totally excited (the last time I spoke there was in 2007 – Paying it Forward: Harnessing the MySQL Contributory Resources – where I talked about moving from BitKeeper to Bazaar, using Launchpad, the MySQL Forge, and more). This time around, I will be giving a talk titled: MariaDB: The new M in LAMP. I feel a little nostalgia, because the MySQL ecosystem has evolved a lot since December 2007.

The database crew is going to be strong there, as we also have Gary Pendergast, my friend from MySQL (now Oracle) giving a talk titled: Tuning MySQL for Performance, Stability and Fail Safety.

We figured we’d have some kind of meetup, either over

Dumping DDL – mysqldump tables, stored procedures, events, triggers (separately)

If you like to keep your ddl backed up in some source management tool like svn or cvs and want to do it individually for stored procedures, events, triggers, tables and such rather than having a single file you can easily do so using the below. You could even include the –skip-dump-date or –skip-comments and use the below to compare ddl daily checking for alterations thus making sure you are aware of any ddl changes done on the database.

password=`cat ~/.backup_password`
date=`date +%Y%m%d`

Ignite MySQL at the MySQL Conference and Expo

I’ll be giving a talk tonight at the Ignite MySQL! For those of you who don’t know about this format, I suggest that you check out Ignite!.  The basic premise is:

My talk will be called Backups Don’t Make Me Money
