+3 Vote Up -1Vote Down

In preparing for this month’s Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo, I’ve been reminiscing about the annual MySQL User Conference’s history – the 9 times it previously took place in its various reincarnations – and there are a lot of good things, fun things to remember.

2003 was the year that marked the first MySQL user conference independently organized by MySQL AB. It was called the “MySQL Users Conference” and took place at the Double Tree

Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2013: It feels like 2007 again
+3 Vote Up -1Vote Down

I actually don’t remember exactly whether it was in 2006, 2007 or 2008 — but around that time the MySQL community had one of the greatest MySQL conferences put on by O’Reilly and MySQL. It was a good, stable, predictable time.

Shortly thereafter, the MySQL world saw acquisitions, forks, times of uncertainly, more acquisitions, more forks, rumors (“Oracle is going to kill MySQL and the whole Internet”) and just a lot of drama and politics.

And now, after all this time some 6 or 7 years later, it feels like a MySQL Renaissance. All of the major MySQL players are coming to the

Catch the webinar: “Learn How MySQL 5.6 Makes Query Optimization Easier” for more tips on the 5.6 optimizer

While preparing the webinar I will deliver this Friday, I ran into a quite interesting (although not very impacting) optimizer issue: a “SELECT *” taking half the time to execute than the same “SELECT one_indexed_column” query in MySQL 5.6.10.

This turned into a really nice exercise for checking the performance and inner workings of one of the nicest features of the newer MySQL

I’ve been woefully neglectful of my responsibilities to post regularly about Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2013 (PLCME 2013), but here’s some highlights of what I am planning to attend from the schedule.  Read to the very bottom for the chance to win a free full pass to the conference!

Webinar on Read/Write Splitting with PHP
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I’ll be presenting a webinar next Wednesday, January 23 at 10 a.m. (Pacific Time), about issues application developers should think about for scaling out read-query traffic using multiple MySQL instances in a replication pair.

Specifically, about the care we have to take because replication is asynchronous.  This means the slave  may not have current data at all times, so an application must choose to query the slave or the master dynamically.  As much as possible, we’d like to automate this choice so that application developers can be the most productive.
