Frank Mashraqi on Hadoop, memcached, and why the MySQL Conference is cool

Today I spoke with Farhan “Frank” Mashraqi, former Fotolog DBA, now working at a startup, NetEdge, working on social analytics. He’s talking about the two sessions he’s giving next week at the MySQL Conference & Expo 2009, as well as the benefits of being at the MySQL Conference & Expo.



He’s giving two talks:

  1. Hadoop and MySQL: Friends with Benefits in where he will tell you about how you can combine data sets and queries, some of which run on Hadoop, and others which run on MySQL, but eventually probably end up in MySQL (he works on this cool stuff at NetEdge, the startup he’s currently attached …

Sunday April 19th Games Day

The Sunday before the MySQL User Conference is always full of trying to meet up with new or old friends, even if your flight lands after dinnertime. With that in mind, the very first event of the week is MySQL Camp’s “Games Day”.

From 12 noon until midnight on the Mezzanine of the Santa Clara Hyatt Hotel (adjoining the Santa Clara Convention Center), there will be an informal games day. The list of games that are definitely appearing are on the MySQL Forge at:

http://forge.mysql.com/wiki/MySQLConf2009SundayNotes

There is still one game I would like to see appear (Set), though there is plenty to keep folks busy — board games, a puzzle, decks of cards, even building toys. I’ll probably be knitting, so if you are the crafty sort and can bring your craft with you that’s …

Speaking at the MySQL conference



Finally we got our proposal approved for the the MySQL conference and Victor and I will be speaking on April 22 about Testing the cluster with ANSTE.

speaking at mysqlconf

This year I was happy to be accepted as a speaker at MySQLConf 2009, presenting a session on MySQL Enterprise Monitor and Query Analyzer alongside Phil Hildebrand.

What’s it about? We’ll talk about the Enterprise Monitor and Query Analyzer tools from a user perspective.  You may have read a Sun/MySQL press release or a whitepaper on those (maybe even mine), but it still may be hard to get a sense of what these products are and why they are useful.

Because these are part of MySQL’s Enterprise offering, they are not free open source software.  Thus I suspect only a small percentage of MySQL users are aware of what they do and probably even fewer have …

MySQL Conference and Camp Timings

As many of us know, the 5th annual MySQL Conference and Expo is happening April 20-23rd, 2009 in Santa Clara, California. The theme is Innovation Everywhere, and this year the conference organizers have taken an innovative page from OSCon and decided to host a free “camp” during the conference.

As far as I know, MySQL Camp is the only free, non-commercial programming occurring. We already have a fantastic lineup of speakers and last week I was surprised with another bounty — MySQL Camp has been extended to Thursday!

While you are making your travel and lodging arrangements, remember that on Sunday April 19th on the mezzanine of the conference hotel there will be a Games Day from 12 noon - 12 midnight. Stop by, play …

Issues Booking the MySQL 2009 Conference Hotel

So, a colleague ran into issues booking the Santa Clara Hyatt Regency Hotel—apparently there were no rooms with 2 double beds left for the MySQL 2009 Conference and Expo.

I could not imagine that the conference hotel would sell out so quickly!

The conference’s travel/hotel web page links directly to the online reservations page at http://santaclara.hyatt.com/groupbooking/clara2009orea.

I went there and did a little detective work. What I found was:

  • When I chose Mon Apr 20 - Thu Apr 23, there were rooms with 2 double beds available.
  • When I chose Sun Apr 19 - Thu Apr 23, there were rooms with 2 double beds available.
  • When I chose Sat Apr 18 - Thu Apr 23, there were rooms with 2 double beds available. …

A little MySQL Conference & Expo 2009 update

The one thing that has consumed my days (and nights) recently, has been the organising of the MySQL Conference & Expo 2009 (hereinafter, referred to as the CE2009).

For starters, we’ve had 356 proposals. That basically provides a 1:3 acceptance:rejection ratio. So the voting committee had a really, really hard task to look at talks. Some even cross-referenced submissions with other submissions. Some even made suggestions of combining talks (successful, even). So my great thanks to the voting committee for the CE2009 - you guys all rock.

Then, once the voting committee has done the hard work, you’ve got to sanely schedule the talks. This is really, not an easy task. Very quickly, you realise that you want to be in all track, and you’ve got to split yourselves. This, being impossible, however, leaves room for the community (and in the past, …
