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 ;

Speaking at Percona Live: common_schema, MySQL DevOps

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.

I'll review

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.

The response we got on Reversim Summit? It

MC at Percona Live San Francisco 2014
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

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

I might even choose to demo

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!
+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.

My
