MySQL Fabric a big hit at Texas Linuxfest
Employee +2 Vote Up -1Vote Down

MySQL was proud to return as a sponsor of the Texas Linuxfest last weekend. Over 700 tickets sold and I probably talked to all bu two or three. Luckily I had help from Quality Assurance Guru Jeb Miller and Software Release Manager Hema Sridharan as things got very busy. The crowd was really supportive of us, MySQL, and extremely friendly.

MySQL Fabric was a popular topic of discussion. Evidently playing ‘who has the virtual IP address’ is a big problem for DevOps staffs and Fabric solves that issue. Many in attendance were on the verge of needing to shard their data and liked having a tool to manage the work for them.

And Workbench 6.1 is extremely popular. Me, “Have you seen the latest MySQL Workbench in

    How to get the MySQL Community Team at Your Local Event
    Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    December is half way through the budget year for the MySQL Community Team and we carefully meter out our small budget to make the most effective use from it. But December is also the time when existing conferences start the tasks of preparing for next year and brave souls who have never been part of a conference start out from scratch to create a new show. The MySQL Community Team would love to help with your conference.

    First we need to know about your conference. We do scour the announcement sites like callingallpapers.com and lanyrd.com but your show may have been inadvertently skipped. Tell us the dates, the location, how many people you are expecting, your target audience (PHP Developers, DBAs, left handed actuaries from the

    Texas Linuxfest
    Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    The Texas Linuxfest might be the ‘little brother’ of the SCaLE show. While a smaller shower in length, it fells much more muscular. I had a full room for a session on The Proper Care and Feeding of a MySQL Database. The audience was sharp, asked amazingly great questions, and hungry for MySQL 5.6 features. And at the booth I was pleasantly inundated with MySQL questions and proud DBAs bragging about their instances.

    If you missed the this show this year, please make the trip to Austin next year. You’ll not be disappointed.

    The PHPTek Conference bills itself as the premier professional PHP conference with a community flair. Having been to dozens of PHP conferences, I thought that was a pretty bold claim.

    Reestablishing a MySQL Tradition
    Employee +8 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Every so often you see something from the past and wonder “Why don’t we do that anymore?” Well, in this case it was a former co-worker wearing his MySQL Contributor shirt.

    This is Antony Curtis in one of the original MySQL Community Contributor shirt

    So the MySQL Community Team had a quick meeting and the result is that we are reestablishing the tradition. So if you have a signed Oracle Contributor Agreement and have contributed to MySQL, you should have in your inbox a request for your shirt size and a shipping address. If you do not see an email and you qualify for a short, let us know (we probably have an old email on record for you). And if you are working on some

    Lenka and I are at Oracle HQ for the Oracle Leadership Summit. This event is the start of the calendar year for us and brings the leaders of Oracle user groups together to share information. From around the world, leaders of IOUG, OHUG, and other groups to share ideas. The concept used by the Boston MySQL User Group with MySQL Marinate has caught the attention of quite a few folks. The vast majority of IOUG folks also run MySQL in their data centers and they are interested in seeing local MySQL Groups flourish.

    So if you are interested in starting a new MySQL Users Group, let me or Lenka know AND contact your local IOUG chapter. We can aid you in getting meeting space in an Oracle office and your local IOUG chapter can help with other organizational issues when startinga group.
