MySQL Conference: what’s in a name?
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This is just something that I realized this morning. There were some talks about how the “MySQL Users Conference & Expo” was renamed to “MySQL Conference & Expo” - thereby omitting the “Users” part. The talk was something like “So where are we, the users, in this story?”

But what I’ve just recalled was a discussion (was it previous year, or the one before that?) comparing the “PostgreSQL Conference” and the “MySQL Users Conference”, as it was named back then. In that discussion, the PostgreSQL people were bashing MySQL, saying that the “PostgreSQL Conference” was all about the database and whatever was around it, whilst the “MySQL Users Conference” clearly stated that the attendees were “just users”, not like real participants or members.

The Future of MySQL
Employee +1 Vote Up -2Vote Down

What is the future of MySQL? This is a question that interests many.

To be specific: Will there be significant performance improvements? Code contributions? Bug fixes? New features? Open Source licensed documentation? Will the users be happy with the Monthly Rapid Updates now released for the MySQL Community Server?

On another, more competitive level: Will there be successful forks? What will the MySQL AB founders do? What is Percona’s next move?

Julian Cash, known for his visionary photography, extended his scope during a Wednesday session at the MySQL Conference. Hard work

Feedback from MySQL Cluster tutorial
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Way back on Monday (at the MySQL Conference and Expo), I gave a full day tutorial on MySQL Cluster (http://www.mysql.com/cluster). I awoke early in the morning to a “oh ha ha” URL in an IM; but no, it wasn’t jetlag playing tricks with me. Luckily, this didn’t take much (if anything) away from the purpose of the day: teaching people about NDB.

Distracting-and-this-time-really-annoying-thing-of-the-day-2: It seems that O’Reilly had cut back on power this year, and there were no power boards in the room. A full day interactive tutorial, and nowhere to plug in laptops. Hrrm.. Luckily, having over the many years I’ve been speaking at

MySQL Conference 2009 daily summary: Wednesday
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Busy day again: today the Percona conference joined the regular schedule, so more stuff to attend!

What did I attend?

Maria In Depth, Monty Widenius, MontyProgram AB (Percona conference): Monty was discussing Maria performance-wise as opposed to his later session which was feature-wise). He did delve just a little bit into the decision making issues in MySQL and in his new company. He also spoke (and I believe this took the most weight of the session, even if not the most time) of his new company, what he wants to achieve and how.

Build Your Own MySQL Time Machine, (Sun Microsystems), Mats Kindahl (Sun Microsystems). A web based utility for creating online backups and performing a point in time restoration was presented. The system is based on MySQL 6.0’s new backup

Offshore monitoring of windfarms using GlassFish - MySQL Users Conference 2009 Day 3
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

John Powell from eMapSite stopped by at the Whisper Suite in MySQL Users Conference earlier today to talk about his GlassFish issue. The possible workaround was suggested and then the discussion became interesting on how GlassFish is used for offshore monitoring of windfarms and process weather forecasting data. Hear all about it and watch a flashy demo of their product in this video:


NetBeans, GlassFish, and MySQL is their development stack with a "very positive experience"!

Stay tuned for the stories entry.

Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Today’s Great Open Cloud Shootout was great fun — at least for me! I had the pleasure to tease these distinguished gentlemen with cloudy questions:

  • Lew Tucker, Cloud CTO, Sun Microsystems
  • Monty Taylor, MySQL Drizzle Geek, Sun Microsystems
  • Jeremy Zawodny, MySQL hacker, craigslist
  • Chander Kant, CEO, Zmanda
  • Thorsten von Eicken, CTO, RightScale
  • Prashant Malik, Cassandra Dude, Facebook
  • Mike Culver, Evangelist, Amazon Web Services

I tried to provoke the panelists with questions around some areas I had thought out:

    Video: Interview with Marc Delisle, of the phpMyAdmin project
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    I caught up with Marc Delisle (we have a relatively old interview with him on the MySQL DevZone) recently, and got him to give us an introduction to phpMyAdmin, the several books he’s written, and how the project gets new features from the Google Summer of Code. What’s really impressive? They continue winning awards (Marc won one from MySQL in 2009 as well!), and have a user base of nearly 18.5 million (this is downloads — not just users, considering how common it is in shared hosting environments). Watch the video for more.

    Video: Interview with Microsoft’s PHP Evangelist
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    I caught up with Zach Skyles Owens, a PHP Evangelist at Microsoft. If you missed the embed, watch the video. I have some sparse notes below.



    I learned some new things:

    • Microsoft spends time working with the PHP community
    • They are porting applications to work with an SQL Server backend
    • They are ensuring that the language should “just work”, with the IIS and SQL Server stack. This is quite different from the usual AMP (Apache = server, MySQL = database, PHP = language) stack that we’re quite accustomed to.
    • There is a Microsoft Web Platform, and there’s a
