+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2013 is almost 1 month away. It's time to start planning, set the expectations, and decide what to attend. This post will give a roundup of some of the sessions that I recommend attending and I look forward to.

First, the unexpected!

After much talk and disbelief, here they come! Oracle (http://www.mysql.com) engineers will participate to the Percona Live conference. This is wonderful! Their participation was requested by the organizers, by the attendees, and by community advocates, who all told the Oracle management how important it is to be in this conference. Finally, they have

North East Linux Fest and Open Database Camp - Boston, March 16-17 2013
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

On Thursday, I will travel to Boston, MA, to attend the Northeast LinuxFest, which includes also an edition of the Open Database Camp. The events will be at one of my favorite places on earth: The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a.k.a. the MIT. Every time I speak at an event there, I feel at home, and I look forward to be there once more.

The Open Database Camp is organized, as usual, with the formula of an un-conference, where the schedule is finalized on the spot.

There are a few ideas for sessions. I have proposed two of the topics I am most familiar with:

    MySQL Sandbox as a riddle
    +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Shlomi Noach is the next chairman of the Percona Live 2013. As such, he has opened the preview of the conference by posting some talks of interests, which includes a riddle to win a free pass.

    The riddle went unanswered, and Shlomi submitted it also to members of the review committee, getting only blank stares, including mine.

    Who will open your present,
    Make you play pleasant,
    Tidy your mess,
    Do the same for all else?

    Wanting to give away the pass at all costs, Shlomi then published a new post,

    Lightning talks at Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2013
    +6 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    It happened last year at the previous Conference, and it's going to happen this year as well.

    There will be a session of lightning talks during the conference, for the joy of both the audience and the speakers.

    Lightning talks are fun and instructional micro events. Their official purpose is to give the audience a chance to learn something in a very limited amount of time. The real purpose is for the speaker to be as entertaining and memorable as possible within the allocated time.

    The call for participation is open from now until February 10th. If you have something that you want to say in not more than 5 minutes, you can SUBMIT A PROPOSAL.

    Libdrizzle 5.1.2 released and Libdrizzle at FOSDEM
    +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down
    Libdrizzle is getting better and better with every release, and to reflect this we have two announcements to make.

    First of all, Libdrizzle 5.1.2 has been released.  This release has several major bug fixes and performance enhancements.  Changes are as follows:
    • Non-blocking Windows connections are now more stable
    • Improvements to Windows building
    • Unix Socket connections are now more stable
    • Memory allocation/freeing cleanups (for performance and ease of code)
    • Network packet buffer now much more flexible
    • Many performance improvements (the bundled drizzle_binlogs tool is now around 10x faster on my i7 laptop)
    • Several other minor bug fixes
    API chages:
    • drizzle_query_str() has been removed, drizzle_query() with a 0 byte length parameter now does the same thing.

    Percona Live 2013 schedule released!
    +6 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    I'm happy to report the release of the program schedule for the next Percona Live event, April 2013.

    While you can see there are still some "TODO"s, and minor scheduling changes still to go, the overall reviewing process is complete, and the schedule is sound.

    The committee has reviewed over 250 submissions in total, sessions and tutorials. It took two months to review the sessions and finalize the schedule. There were very good submissions, and it wasn't till I started building the schedule that I realized just how many.

    You know the feeling: you're at a conference, and there's this time slot where you just can't make up your mind which session

    Solving replication problems with Tungsten replicator
    +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    On Monday afternoon, Neal Armitage and I will be speaking at Percona Live in London. It will be a three hours tutorial about Tungsten replicator.

    The contents of this tutorial are mostly new. We have released recently a new and easier way of installing different topologies, in the shape of cookbook scripts, which are distributed with the replicator tarball.

    Using this cookbook, any user can simply install multiple topologies, from the simple master/slave to all-masters, fan-in, and star.

    There are recipes for showing the replication cluster, switching roles between master and a chosen slave, taking over MySQL replication, installing direct slaves with parallel replication, testing each topology, and
