Bristol MySQL Meetup & Holland Part II
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

So just a quick note to express how great it felt to get the first MySQL Meetup in the UK's Bristol done. We had great enthusiastic attendees bringing their own curiosity about the product. We spent a couple of hours in conversation about a broad range of MySQL related topics. Amongst the points discussed were; MySQL Connect, Percona Live London, InnoDB vs. MyISAM, replication, query tuning and Ben gave a demo on pt-query-digest and pt-visual-explain. Although we touched many aspects it was really a primer for what we would like to achieve going forward. We're planning content and …

common_schema roadmap thoughts
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I'm happy with common_schema; it is in fact a tool I use myself on an almost daily basis. I'm also happy to see that it gains traction; which is why I'm exposing a little bit of my thoughts on general future development. I'd love to get feedback.

Supported versions

At this moment, common_schema supports MySQL >= 5.1, all variants. This includes 5.5, 5.6, MySQL, Percona Server & MariaDB.

5.1 is today past end of line, and I'm really missing the …

Some of my MySQL Forge snippets are resurfacing
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down


Some time ago, MySQL Forge went offline.

As part of the Forge dismissal operations, I got a backup of my snippets from the MySQL community team, and I have been lazily looking around for an alternative place where to put them.

I found such a place: Github GIST
Gist is a simple way to share snippets and pastes with others. All gists are git repositories, so they are automatically versioned, forkable and usable as a git repository.

Out of my 25 snippets, these are the ones that still look useful (at least, people have …

I have used it for more than testing, and it has saved me many hours of labor by allowing me to create database servers in a few seconds.
Yet, I have gathered a long …

On contributing to MySQL
+5 Vote Up -0Vote Down


Dave Stokes has just written that MySQL is Looking for External Contributions. The first comments on that were negative, saying that forcing developers to sign a contributor agreement is not friendly, and that MySQL developers don't play well with external contributors.

To be fair, it is not Oracle that has an unfriendly policy about contributions. It was already like this with MySQL AB, and the reason is simply that the company wants to maintain ownership of the code, so that it will be able to sell dual …
