Some anecdotes I learned at Percona Live
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

While on the plane back home I wrote down all my impressions from Percona Live 2014. Have lots of TODOs and great ideas to implement. Among all my impressions, there were a few anecdotes worth noting.

  • 5.6 GTID is still unfriendly. It will require complete shutdown & reconfiguration of your entire replication topology; and some companies present hacks around this. Notable, Facebook recoded GTID related code (slave agrees to replicate with GTID even though its master still uses binlog coordinates). Booking.com have their own hack around slowly migrating their topologies. And in a great lightning talk we were shown how to patch MySQL such that the relay logs turn into a  consistent GTID-like coordinate system.
  • Galera replication has been implemented for TokuDB (only active-passive mode, not active-active). This came as a surprise to Tokutek ;

In less than a month I'll be giving these two talks at Percona Live:

If you are still unfamiliar with common_schema, this will make for a good introduction. I'll give you multiple reasons why you would want to use it, and how it would come to immediate use at your company. I do mean immediate, as in previous common_schema presentations I happened to get feedback emails from attendees within the same or next day letting me know how common_schema solved an insistent problem of theirs or how it exposed an unknown status.

Percona Live - call for "Hall of Shame" talks
+1 Vote Up -1Vote Down

We've got some spare time on Percona Live during the lightning talks session, and are spontaneously calling for "Hall of Shame" submissions.

What is this about?

We just had a wonderful Reversim Summit a couple weeks back, where we held the "Hall of Shame" session. We are used to hear talks about success stories and great new technologies. Well, this session is your chance to come up and say: "I messed up, and I'm proud of it!"

You will have 3-4 minutes to tell us about how you once accidentally dropped your database; corrupted your data; brought your company's service down. The greater the damage, the greater the appeal! But we're looking for the funny edge - not for a tragedy. There are no slides. Just a "Hall of Shame" screen behind you.

Now I’m back in the MySQL fold, I’ve got the opportunity to speak at Percona Live again. I’ve always enjoyed speaking at this conference (back when it was known by another name…), although I need to up my game and do the 6 talks I did back in 2009.

On the Tuesday afternoon, tutorials day, I’m running a half-day session with my replication colleague Linas Virbalas. This will be similar to the session I did at Percona Live London, and cover some of the more advanced content on replication, including, but not limited to:

  • Filters
  • JavaScript Filtering
  • Some fun and practical filters
  • Heterogeneous replication from MySQL out to MongoDB, Vertica, Oracle and Hadoop

MySQL Community Awards 2014: Call for Nominations!
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The 2014 MySQL Community Awards event will take place, as usual, in Santa Clara, April 2014, during the Percona Live MySQL Conference & Expo (currently scheduled at Thursday, April 3rd 2014).

The MySQL Community Awards is a community based initiative. The idea is to publicly recognize contributors to the MySQL ecosystem. The entire process of discussing, voting and awarding is controlled by an independent group of community members, typically based of past winners or their representatives, as well as known contributors.

It is a self-appointed, self-declared, self-making-up-the-rules-as-it-goes committee. It is also very aware of the importance of the community; a no-nonsense, non-political, adhering to tradition, self criticizing

Percona Live 2014 schedule released; BoF and Lightning Talks Call for Papers continues
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The complete tutorial & session schedule for Percona Live MySQL Conference & Expo 2014 is released. This schedule offers both a sense of achievement as well as a sense of regret; for I believe the schedule is very good, and yet some good proposals had to be left out.

This is an inevitable result of a conference that is popular and receives far more proposals than can fit within the time frames. This conference offers 96 session slots and 16 3-hour tutorial slots. We got well over 300 proposals -- I'm not even sure how to count them -- and they just can't all fit in. My sincere apologies to all those left out. A proposal of mine was just rejected yesterday from another conference; I can sympathize and

Why a professional conference must have a committee, and what that committee does
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

What exactly is it that a conference committee does? This post comes as response to a comment on A sneak peek at the Percona Live MySQL Conference & Expo 2014, reading:

Why the same committee each year? Community should vote on proposals and committee should just work schedule,etc.

I'll pick the glove and shed some light into the work of the committee. While this specific comment related to the Percona Live conference, I trust that my opinions expressed below apply just as well to any (technical?) professional conference; the point below can equally apply to conferences from Oracle MySQL Connect, O'Reilly Velocity to FOSDEM & PyCon.

I can sum up the entire answer with one word:

Percona Live London 2013 : My Chairman point of view!

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.

Percona Live: MySQL Conference & Expo 2014: call for papers & guidelines

Call for papers for Percona Live MySQL Conference & Expo 2014 is open. As in previous year, I have the honour of being conference committee chairman, which means I'm in particular part of the reviewing committee. I wish to add to Giuseppe's fine observations and suggestions. On submitting a talk, please consider the following:

  • Make it right the first time (an old advice by Baron). We will not be able to review your proposal more than once. We will not be iterating the proposals again and again to see what's changed, nor will we have a feed for updated content. We will not be able to diff any changes you made to your proposal.

Call for papers (with lightning talks): Percona Live MySQL Conference 2014
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The call for participation for Percona Live MySQL Conference 2014 is still open. As part of the review committee, I will be looking at the proposals, and I hope to see many interesting ones.

There is a novelty in the submission form. In addition to tutorials and regular sessions, now you can submit proposals for lightning talks, to which I am particularly interested, as I have organized the lightning talks in the past two editions, and I am in charge to continue the tradition for the next one.

If you want to be a speaker at the conference, here are some tips to get your proposal accepted:

  • Propose a topic that you know well;
  • Take some time to write a well thought and meaningful proposal: nothing gets me faster to the rejection button

Percona Live London MySQL Conference - 11-12th November, 2013

We’re particularly excited about this year’s Percona Live London MySQL Conference. The line-up of speakers & topics looks excellent and it’s good to see speakers from Oracle, Percona, the MariaDB Foundation (amongst others) scheduled at the same event. It demonstrates not just the diversity of the ever broadening MySQL ecosystem, but also the fact that there really is room for everyone to contribute, participate in and advance MySQL in manifold directions while still retaining a certain amount of uniformity.

And this is how we will be contributing to the event ...

common_schema: speaking at Percona Live London, Nov. 2013
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In one week's time I'll be presenting common_schema: DBA's framework for MySQL at Percona Live, London.

This talk introduces the rich toolset known as common_schema. It is free, open source, extremely useful in solving DBA & developer tasks, and is the next best thing ever invented next to SQL pie charts.

I'll introduce:

  • Views, with which you can detect and terminate idle transactions, blocking transactions; roll your range partitions; find duplicate keys; block/unblock accounts; get fine grained privileges per account; find AUTO_ICNREMENT free space; ...
  • Routines: do meta executions such as eval(); get query checksums; duplicating accounts; killing suspicious connections;

I wasn’t at the MySQL Conference this year but it was very nice to follow this event from Paris.
Of course I didn’t feel the general atmosphere by visiting booths or met fabulous people.
But it was a great opportunity to offer you a live post about the conference with an external point of view.

Twitter, RSS feeds (yes Google, I still use RSS), Planet MySQL and infiltrators were my best friends during this crazy week.

I would like to summarize the major announcements and events occurs during this tenth edition.

Percona Live 2013 keynotes: followup questions and discussion
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Here are a few questions remained open for me from Percona Live 2013 about things that have been said during keynotes; I will appreciate a discussion on comments. Here goes:

Question #1

Brian Aker (HP) asks Simone Brunozzi (Amazon) what the underlying technology for DynamoDB is. Simone says can't disclose. Brian says: "it's MySQL!!". Simone says: "can't disclose". Brian insists: "it's MySQL!!"

Seriously? I will be very much surprised to learn that DynamoDB uses MySQL; it doesn't make sense to me. Why would Brian Aker say that though? Did he just mean to tease Simone or is there something I just don't get?

(Yes, Brian?)

    At the airport, trying to sum up my impressions from Percona Live 2013 conference in Santa Clara.

    Woo! Hard to sum up four excellent days. Shall I review the great talks I've been to? The keynotes? The well organized events?

    You know what, skip it. There was ONE thing that overshadowed everything. It was the ONE thing for me that was the pure essence of the conference and its greatest joy:

    Meeting and talking to a great many great people!

    I was fortunate to meet up with so many people; none that I planned; things just went in such way that I engaged in so many conversations with so many people. I found myself talking about hamsters, peacocks, living in the village, living in the city, working from home, commute, relocation, working with your spouse, life in Israel, life in Argentina, prisons in the US, having many children, gun

    Percona Live 2013 is shortly upon us, and it might be a good idea to watch for what's ahead of us.

    Talks of interest

    There is no way I can do justice to all. I wish to point out a small number of sessions I am personally interested in attending. I will not be able to attend them all, since there are too many sessions of interest and too few instances of myself (merely one).

    I've tried to list some talks which are not absolutely obvious (when Peter Zaitsev speaks of MySQL performance, or Monty speaks about MariaDB, or Robert Hodges or Domas speak about replication -- well -- you're certain to have the ins and outs, right?). I can also expect Galera or Percona XtraDB Cluster talks to attract a lot of attention. There is a lot of good content for each.
