MySQL University: MySQL Galera Multi-Master Replication
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This Thursday (February 11th, 14:00 UTC), Seppo Jaakola & Alex Yurchenko will talk about MySQL Galera Multi-Master Replication. Galera provides synchronous multi-master replication and uses a certification-based replication method for replicating transaction write sets in a DBMS cluster. The replication method requires close co-operation with database transaction processing and DMBS must support a specific replication API to be compatible with Galera. Codership has integrated Galera replication in the InnoDB storage engine, and the resulting MySQL/Galera cluster product has been published as a production-ready GA release in December

MySQL University: Speakers wanted!
Employee +4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I may sound like a broken record, but currently we have only three MySQL University sessions scheduled for this year. In 2009, we ran more than 25 sessions, and I'd surely like to get anywhere near that figure.

Anyone who has something technical to say about MySQL qualifies as a speaker. MySQL University sessions take place on Thursday afternoons European time, and normally have between 20 and 30 attendees, but quite a lot of people listen to the recordings when the live sessions' time isn't convenient for them. We're using Dimdim as our conferencing system, so the setup for speakers is very simple: Just grab a headset, start a Flash-enabled browser on either Windows, Mac OS X,

MySQL University: Practical Full-Text Search in MySQL
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This Thursday (December 3rd, 16:00 UTC – note the different time), Bill Karwin will talk about Practical Full-Text Search in MySQL. He'll introduce and compare five different approaches of full-text search with MySQL, using built-in functionality as well as third-party tools. It's interesting to see how vastly performance can vary, depending on which tools you use for which purposes.

MySQL University: Speakers for 2010 wanted!

We'll soon have our last MySQL University session for this year, followed by a winter break until the end of January 2010. So far there's only one session scheduled next year, but we'd like to have one session per week, so we need lots more speakers!

MySQL University: The Spider Storage Engine
Employee +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This Thursday (November 26th, 14:00 UTC), Giuseppe Maxia will present the Spider Storage Engine. This session was originally scheduled for October 15th but had to be postponed for technical reasons.

Here's from the abstract: Everybody needs sharding. Which is not easy to maintain. Being tied to the application layer, sharding is hard to export and to interact with. The Spider storage engine, a plugin for MySQL 5.1 and later, solves the problem in a transparent way. It is an extension of partitioning.

MySQL University: Memcached Functions for MySQL
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This Thursday (November 19th, 14:00 UTC), Patrick Galbraith will present memcached Functions for MySQL (UDFs). This session is about a suite of functions available to use with MySQL that allow you to store, retrieve and delete data, as well as most of the functions and operations that are available with libmemcached, such as server connectivity to the client, server status, client behaviors, and more. You can combine the fetching of data from one or more tables with the fetching of data from memcached and be able to apply any SQL operations on that result set such as LIMIT, sorting and other conditional operations.

Follow-up: MySQL University session recording on Gearman available now
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Yesterday's MySQL University session on Gearman for MySQL had a rough start. After I had assigned Giuseppe presenter status we found out that Dimdim (our conferencing system) now turns on video when it discovers a web cam on the presenter's computer. That's not a bad thing in general, but you can't turn it off, which *is* a bad thing when your network bandwidth is less than superior. As a consequence, Giuseppe's voice came over very choppy, and the presentation stopped altogether after a few minutes.

For that reason, we decided to restart the session from scratch. This time Giuseppe turned off his camera before becoming presenter, and the session worked flawlessly. For those of you who've given up because of bad sound quality, the recording is here, and it looks and sounds good. You can find it on the MySQL University session page:

This Thursday (November 12th, 14:00 UTC), Giuseppe Maxia of the MySQL Community Team will present Gearman for MySQL. Gearman is a client/server infrastructure for generic tasks, usable on distributed servers, with little worry about the details. No matter what language you speak, Gearman can meet your needs in C, PHP, Perl, Ruby, shell scripting, and several more. Gearman can also work in conjunction with MySQL, either using UDFs, or simply through its basic architecture. Giuseppe's talk will show examples of how to use Gearman for remote installation and how to call a complicate data warehousing function written in Perl from any other language, with no knowledge of Perl at

MySQL University: GRAPH computation engine for MySQL
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This Thursday (November 5th, 10:00 UTC - note the different time for this session!), Arjen Lentz of Open Query will present the brand new GRAPH computation engine for MySQL.

From the abstract: Most of us have had to deal with hierarchies (trees) and graphs (such as friend-of-a-friend style problems), and have thus learn that this is -at best- a bit of a monster to do in an SQL/RDBMS. Until now. The GRAPH engine (GPLv2 licensed) is a MySQL storage engine allowing hierarchies and more complex graph structures to be handled in a relational fashion. In a nutshell, tree structures and friend-of-a-friend style searches can now be done using standard
