MySQL Community awards 2009
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Attending the MySQL Users Conference in 2006, I had one of the best days of my career. At the morning keynote, my name was called, and I found myself on stage, together with Markus Popp, Roland Bouman, and Rasmus Lerdorf, being awarded a Community Member of the year crystal ball. That day is permanently in my mind as a very fond memory.

For this reason, it is a particular pleasure for me to be in a position to suggest the next ones who will hold the community awards. It is a collegial decision, not my own. Each member of the community team submits a few names, we discuss the pros and the cons, and then we settle for the first three names in the list.

This year, the agreement fell on three names, who were included for different reasons.

Conference Aftermath

It is always after the conference when you get home that you notice missing items.I think I left a zip-up storage bag in Conference room A after my presentation of Perl Stored Procedures which may contain a few cables and a laptop security lock.Annoying when stuff like that happens.

Thoughts on Drizzle Developer Day

I wasn't able to spend the whole day at the Drizzle Developer Day, which was held at the Sun campus on the day after the MySQL Conference, but it was interesting none the less.I enjoyed discussing stuff with Monty Taylor and Stewart Smith and was able to show them some ideas which I hope will inspire more innovation in Drizzle. I would have liked to have had some time to chat with Brian Aker some

There apparently was T-shirts for speakers at the MySQL Conference but a few of us speakers have not received them - it was not clear where to get them from in the conference hall and there was confusion when I asked other speakers when I asked them as they did not know. Well - it seems that there was a conference T-Shirt but it was from the conference hall (which is now all packed up and gone) .
Perl Stored Procedures for MySQL

Files used in conference presentation here: UC2009 presentationI think todays presentation for Perl Stored Procedures for MySQL was quite successful. The audience was quite engaged and asked questions throughout (yes, I invited questions through the talk). I made sure to mention Eric Herman's Java plugin because even though he didn't get time to submit a talk, the work is noteworthy. Sometimes I

MySQL Cluster @ UC

The UC is closing in fast and there are a number of (potentially) interesting talks around MySQL Cluster.
Personally, I will give two talks (sessions):
  • MySQL Cluster 6.4 (7.0) - New Features
    I will talk about ONLINE ADD NODE, and multithreaded data node, and the rest of the things that are new in 7.0. Please note that MySQL Cluster 6.4 changed name to 7.0, but the session title didn't.

My favorite tutorial at the UC2009 : Build and release management

I am looking forward to the MySQL Users Conference and Expo 2009. Since I am a tutorial speaker, my choice of tutorials to attend is limited. Upon completion of my duties, I will attend Greg Haase's tutorial on Build and Release Management for Database Engineers.
There are many reasons for that. For starting, Greg is the winner of the MySQl 5.1 Use Case competition where he has shown his DBA skills, and then, he is using the MySQL Sandbox

My 2 cents...
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
Standing at the sidelines, a few people have asked about my opinion regarding Monty Widenius leaving Sun... And I suppose I probably should offer an opinion about Mårten Mickos departing too.

The big three at MySQL AB... Monty, Mårten and David. None of them are with Sun anymore.
Does that mean the end of MySQL? Certainly not. There is far too much momentum in the community for it to simply disappear overnight.

Of the three... I guess I was a little surprised when David left Sun first. I had imagined that Sun would make space for him in their organization, especially for his campaigning for FOSS in government and to continue MySQL's Anti-Patent pledge.

Monty... I'd like to say that I was surprised but to be honest, I knew that he would leave. It was

Registration for MySQL Conference and Expo 2009 is now open
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Registration is open for the MySQL Users Conference and Expo 2009. The review committee had 350 proposals to choose from, and most of the schedule is already done.

The tutorials section is complete, with a juicy choice of topics from popular classics to the newest ones, all of them with some innovative contents, as the theme Innovation Everywhere requires.

Register before February 16, and save as much as $200.

Registration for the MySQL Conference and expo 2009 is now open.

Kudos to Colin Charles, who has the not easy task of being the program chair of the conference, for pulling the schedule together.

The schedule is not complete yet. If you haven't got either an approval or a rejection, your proposal is still under review. In the previous years, some of my talks were approved as late as February, but we are trying to finish off the schedule much earlier this time.

This is my last blog post for this year. I am going on vacation this evening. No computers, no internet. Therefore, no comments are enabled for this post (there would be nobody to moderate and approve them).

Happy new year, Community!

Tutorial on Partitioning at the MySQL Users Conference 2009
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down



Another approval has arrived. I will be co-presenting a tutorial at the MySQL Users Conference 2009.
Partitioning in MySQL 5.1. My co-speaker is Sarah Sproehnle, a well known MySQL trainer. The topic is one of the flagship features of MySQL 5.1.

The tutorial will cover the basics, several practical scenarios, tips and tricks, and some sneak peeks of the latest enhancements being developed.

Using the event scheduler. The friendly behind-the-scenes helper. My co-speaker will be none other than Andrey Hristov, the designer and implementer of the Event scheduler, one of the main features of MySQL 5.1.
UC2009 - A few days, a few wishes
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We are almost there. Four days more, and then it's over. The CfP for the MySQL Users Conference 2009 ends on November 5th, 2008.

We have already received more proposals than we got last year, and (yes!) many of them are innovative.

Thanks to all the submitters.

I have still a few wishes, though.

There are still no proposals or very little on

  • The event scheduler
  • OpenOffice integration
  • Java
  • The plugin architecture
  • MySQL Proxy
If you have a technical story to tell about one of the subjects above, don't be shy, and come forward!

And of course, if you have some innovative ideas on any topic related to MySQL, feel free to submit a proposal.

UC2009 proposals, wow! A near miss
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

OK. I was exceedingly optimistic, but not too much. I said that we may get enough submissions by the end of the regular CfP, and I was almost right. At midnight of October 22nd, we got 284 submissions, which is about 100 proposals more than last year (before extending), but not as much as we got after the extension.

Well done, MySQL Community!

But since we are hard to please, we want to have at least the same number of proposals that we had last year (I am sure we'll get more!), and so we are extending for two weeks. You have time until November 5th to submit a proposal.

What's missing?

MySQL Users Conference and Expo 2009 : CfP -5 days!
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Still 5 days until the end of the call for participation.

Hurry up! The deadline is October 22, 2008.

Yes. I know what you are thinking. Every year it's hurry hurry and then they extend at the last minute.

Probably so. Or maybe not. After my last reminder, the number and the quality of submissions has improved. And we may manage to get what we want without extensions. If that happens, your only chance for a podium is to submit before October 22nd.

If we get enough good submissions by them, we won't extend. Meaning that if you were counting on an extension to send your proposal, it may be too late.

Of course, if we find out that on the 22nd, laziness was more

MySQL UC2009 - Little innovation so far
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL Community, I am disappointed.

Innovation Everywhere is the theme of the Users Conference and Expo 2009, and yet, in the proposals that I have received so far I have seen very little innovation. Few daring technical proposals. Few accounts of truly novel exploits.

Instead, I've seen very similar topics to past years, without the spark of experimentation that we look for as an extra spice for the year where the topic is Innovation.

If I look at Planet MySQL, I see plenty of movement. New projects, new releases of old projects, people trying exciting technologies, others combining old technologies with new platforms. And yet, some of the people who are posting these exciting news are proposing the same old story.
