Speaking in April 2016

I have a few speaking engagements coming up in April 2016, and I hope to see you at some of these events. I’m always available to talk shop (opensource, MariaDB Server, MySQL, etc.) so looking forward to saying hi.

  • A short talk at the MariaDB Berlin Meetup on April 12 2016 – this should be fun if you’re in Berlin as you’ll see many people from the MariaDB Server and MariaDB MaxScale world talk about what they’re doing for the next releases.
  • rootconf.in – April 14-15 2016, tutorial day on 16 – I’ve not been to India since about 2011, so I’m looking forward to this trip to Bangalore (and my first time to a HasGeek event). Getting the email from the conference chair was very nice, and I believe I’m giving a keynote and a tutorial.

Stewart is speaking at OSDC 2013 in Auckland!

I’ll be speaking at the upcoming Open Source Developers Conference (OSDC 2013) in Auckland, New Zealand! It’s on October 21st-23rd and you should go here right now and register. I’m giving two talks at OSDC this year:

  • MySQL in the cloud, As A Service (Monday 21st, 12:00pm)
    There is no one magic solution to having MySQL As A Service work well, it’s a lot of small moving parts and options that need to be set, monitored and configured. We may wish it was different, or look at other database technologies, but there is a lot of legacy code that talks to MySQL, with all it’s idiosyncrasies – and we need to be able to …

SQL Locking and Transactions – OSDC 2011 video

This recent session at OSDC 2011 Canberra is based on part of an Open Query training day, and (due to time constraints) without much of the usual interactivity, exercises and further MySQL specific detail. People liked it anyway, which is nice! The info as presented is not MySQL specific, it provides general insight in how databases implement concurrency and what trade-offs they make.

See http://2011.osdc.com.au/SQLL for the talk abstract.

Wishing I could be at ODTUG

Ronald asked me if I could present at ODTUG’s Kaleidoscope conference, which is only a couple hours from me, but I’ll be at the Netways OSDC that week. Matt Yonkovit will be there representing Percona. I wish I could go: I would really like to mingle with more Oracle users and developers, and I think that participation is the key to building relationships between MySQL and Oracle users — two groups of people who are going to be overlapping more in the future. If you can attend, I hope you will — and blog about it so I can read.

OSDC update: 2007 program committee deliberations

Andrae and his gang will take some time, with over 100 submissions to consider, but the CfP is now definitely closed and the program committee is busy doing its thing. If you missed out on making a submission, you can of course still try to beg Andrae, but don't push your luck as things do need to move along...

Browsing through the list of proposals, I'm very pleased with the number we received, and also impressed with the quality of the speakers and diverse range of topics. Most are from within Australia, but there are also entries from around the Asia-Pacific, and even as far as Austria and the USA. This should make for a fine program.
