+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

2013 was and we wish you a happy new year 2014!
Last year was amazing and we are looking forward to live 2014.

I’m honored to take part of two amazing events in 2014, the FOSDEM and PLMCE.
By my lowly contribution as committee member of these two events, I wanted to promote open source in general and MySQL in particular.
And the schedule of these events tells me that we won the bet!
(PLMCE schedule will be published next week)

MySQL raises interest more and again in 2014 and is still in the heart of major architectures ;-)
We are proud to promote community events, community projects and open source

+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I would like to write a short and dislocated post on my condition of Chairman of the PLUK this year. When I accepted this mission, I had no clue what was going to be my job and I have no regret about this decision.
Because it was a fantastic experience and a wonderful conference.

So, I would like to thanks Kortney and Percona again for trusting me.
My committee fellows, David, Todd, Kenny, Ben and Ivan for their involvement.
All those of you who have submitted talks and tutorials for their high level and quality.
And of course all the attendees, we have cooked up this conference for you, thank you for being there.

I jumped into this adventure with my beliefs and I wanted to do it as honestly as possible and as humbly as possible.
I attended all the last PLUK conferences and I quickly knew what I wanted for this new event.

I wasn’t at the MySQL Conference this year but it was very nice to follow this event from Paris.

An incomplete list of what your developers would like to know before migrating to MySQL 5.5
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

A few years ago, I asked to check with me in the long (very long) change history of MySQL 5.5 documentation what are the changes in relation to the SQL syntax.
Chris Calender helped me to retrieve a list of the main changes, thanks again Chris.

Today, I would like to share this list with you.
It is simply a curated transcript of what you might find in the documentation but I’m sure it can help some of you.

INTO clause in nested SELECT statements

Previously, the parser accepted an INTO clause in nested SELECT statements, which is invalid because such statements must return their results to the outer context. As of MySQL 5.5.3, this syntax is no longer permitted and statements that use it must be changed.

Table aliases in DELETE statements

As a former Oracle DBA, I know how the system and the database are linked.
The first one who told me that the installation of Oracle has never been a problem is a liar!
Yes, your database and your system are the best of friends, you must respect that.

I’d make a list of linux system settings to configure a MySQL databases server and share my sources with you.
In return, I would like you to share your sources with the community by publishing your tips in the comments.

    MySQL[plus] awards 2011 final results ! (and a story)
    +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Let me tell you a very touching story about these awards.
    As I said in the comments : Sometimes we think about something and the next minute we did it…
    And it exactly what happened, I took my inspiration from the TUAW Best Of 2011 (Yes, I’m also an Apple fan boy, sorry :-)), and a few minutes later, MySQL[plus] awards 2011 were live !

    I thought I could have 50 voters, perhaps 100 voters, in my wildest dreams…

    But more than 300 voters and more than 4000 views later, the reality is there : You are amazing !

    But, no, it wasn’t perfect !

    Percona Live London 2011 is over and it was a wonderfull event. Thanks to Percona for this quality event in Europe.
    And thanks to all speakers for their outstanding performances.

    I just want to share with you some words about PLUK2011, these few words reflect my technical feelings after the event :
    (This is the live transcript of my notes during the conference in random order)

    • MySQL is not dead !
    • Sharding is a good way for write scalability
    • It’s difficult to find a real HA solution for MySQL
    • MHA rocks !
    • IO are more than ever our enemies (and we must get into their privacy)
    • Where is Oracle ?!
    • Glad to see SkySQL there
    • We probably need new références for SSD
