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 …

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 …

MySQL Beginner’s Guide to Collaborate
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

So, you are going to Collaborate (or thinking of going) and you wonder if, as a MySQL beginner, there will be enough content for you. Or you wonder if there will be too much, and how you will ever decide on what to go to. I have put together this list of what I would recommend to a MySQL Beginner at Collaborate.  The schedule is still being tweaked at this point, so there may be great sessions being added or times may be changed, but I will try to re-post closer to the event.  The most up-to-date schedule is at the Agenda Builder – to see only MySQL content, choose MySQL in the “Product Lines” section.

Note that a few weeks ago …

Testing LAMP Applications

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 …

I’ll be going to 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 …
