Hello from Birmingham, UK! I'm here to attend and speak at the UKOUG Technology & E-Business Suite 2010 conference (what a name!) We actually have two packed tracks of MySQL Sessions this Wednesday, including a keynote by Richard Mason (Vice President of MySQL Sales and Consulting at Oracle) about Oracle's strategy and plans for MySQL as well as highly technical sessions about MySQL High Availability, Scalability and Performance tuning from experts in the field. Ronald Bradford, Oracle Ace Director and long-time MySQL community advocate will also be there, speaking about …[Read more]
Yesterday I presented PBXT: A Transactional Storage Engine for
MySQL at the German Oracle User Group Conference (DOAG) in
Nuremberg. A number of people asked for the slides, so here is
The talk was scheduled to be in English, but since I had a German-only audience I presented in German. There was quite a bit of interest, particularly in the Engine Level replication built into PBXT 2.0.
As Ronny observed, this feature can be used effectively for many tasks, including for online backup and maintaining a hot-standby. This all with the addition of a "small" feature:
The Master could initially stream the entire database over to the Slave before actual replication begins. This would also make it extremely easy to setup replication.
A brilliant idea, but a good 3 months work...
Yesterday afternoon I returned from the SAPO CodeBits 2010 conference, which took place in Lisbon, Portugal. Just like the previous year, CodeBits has been a great conference to be at and I am grateful for having been selected for participation. Thursday, the first conference day was quite a busy one for me — I gave two presentations in a row:
Afterwards, I also participated in a panel discussion about " …[Read more]

During my visit to Moscow, Russia next month I’m going to give a full day training/tutorial presentation on Diagnosing and Fixing MySQL Performance Problems . This even will be based on updated and expanded tutorial from MySQL Conference & Expo which was so popular it was sold out earlier this year. This also will be the only full day training event open to the public during this trip. There are few conference talks, user meetings and private training engagements which I’m doing on this trip as well. I’ll blog about these later.

With OpenSQL Camp and FrOSCon being over for almost a week now, it's time to come up with a short summary. I traveled home on Monday morning and then took Tuesday off, so I had some catching up to do...
As for the past years, FrOSCon rocked again! According to the closing keynote, they had around 1.500 (unique) visitors and I had a great time there. I really enjoyed meeting all the old and new faces of the various Open Source communities. The lineup of speakers was excellent, Jon "maddog" Hall's keynote about "Free and Open Source Software in the Developing World" was quite insightful and inspiring.
Most of the time I was busy with speaking at and …[Read more]
The DOAG ("Deutsche ORACLE Anwendergruppe e.V.") is the German association of users of Oracle products. In November 2010 (16th-18th), they will hold their annual Oracle Users Conference 2010, which will take place in Nuremberg, Germany.
This event is quite an institution – it has been established more than 20 years ago already. This year, there will be more than 400 sessions by over 300 speakers. For the first time, this year's conference will also have a dedicated stream of sessions about MySQL and I'm happy to announce that I'll be there, too, giving an overview of the various MySQL Replication Technologies as well as a glimpse into a MySQL DBA's toolchest.
Here's the full list of MySQL sessions, as of today:
- 10:00-10:45: …
We've had a few last-minute changes to the schedule, as some speakers could not make it due to visa or family issues. But we managed to keep all slots filled on both days and I think we've come up with a very nice program! In addition to the two sessions I already had, I've volunteered to take over Giuseppe's talk about Shooting from the Hip. MySQL at the Command Line.
The most up-to-date version of the schedule is on the OpenSQL Camp Wiki, I expect the remaining changes to be reflected on the …[Read more]
