MySQL Community team asked me to write about Devconf 2013 few months ago. Conference was in June, 2013, but I remembered about this my promise only now: month later after my participating in MySQL Connect and Expert Troubleshooting seminar (change country to United Kingdom if you see blank page). I think it is too late for the feedback, but I still have few thoughts which I want to record.
DevConf (former PHPConf) always was a place where I tried new topics. At first, because I know audience there very well and they will be bored if I repeat a story which I was telling
PalominoDB CEO Laine Campbell presented this class at the O'Reilly Velocity Conference, NYC Oct 2013. The class is broken into two videos and is a total of 85 minutes.
Laine will explain the options for running MySQL at high volumes at Amazon Web Services, exploring options around database as a service, hosted instances/storages and all appropriate availability, performance and provisioning considerations using real-world examples from Call of Duty, Obama for America and many more.
Laine will show how to build highly available, manageable and performant MySQL[Read more...]

PalominoDB CTO Jay Edwards and VP of International Operations Shiv Iyer, will be representing PalominoDB as a Silver Sponosor at one of the largest events in India.
Quite some time ago, I published scripts to implement password policies for MySQL, and promised to show how to expose violations of that policy via MySQL Enterprise Monitor (MEM). That stalled somewhat with other objectives, but I want to revisit it now that MEM 3.0 is GA. If you haven’t tried MEM 3.0 yet, consider doing so – it’s quick and easy to set up.
Many people don’t realize that MEM can be extended to monitor things beyond MySQL Server health, including visibility into application state as[Read more...]
The MySQL Connect content catalog is published, and I’ll be leading a hands-on lab on MySQL Enterprise Features in Practice [HOL9787]. If you have wondered how to get the most out of the features of MySQL Enterprise subscriptions (http://www.mysql.com/products/enterprise/" target="_blank) – whether you are an existing Enterprise customer or not – this lab is[Read more...]
I’ll be joining Percona for a free day of MySQL education and insight at their upcoming Percona University Washington DC event on September 12th. My topic is accessing MySQL from Google’s Go programming language. I’ve learned a lot about this over the past year or so, and hopefully I can help you get a quick-start.
If you’re not familiar with Go, it’s the darling of the Hacker News crowd these days. Anything with “Go” in its title gets to the front page for at least a little while! Go is a great systems programming language. It’s safe to say I’ve fallen in love with it, and it’s now my favorite programming language of all those[Read more...]
This week we talk about MySQL Connect sessions. Ear Candy is the mysqladmin "relative" command, and At the Movies is Manipulating JSON with MariaDB and MySQL. Listen to hear how to win a free pass!
DB Hangops - every other Wednesay at noon Pacific time
FrOSCon - Aug 24-25th, 2013 in St. Augustin, Germany.
Oracle is having a MySQL OTN Virtual Developer Day August 31st.
As an update to the previous announcement placed on May 15, 2013 I have the pleasure to announce additional events and conferences which MySQL Community Team supports! We are not only an event partner but we also secure the MySQL technical staff, at some events also Java, Oracle VM and Oracle Linux experts as well. Please come to any of the events below and talk to our staff about the latest news Oracle supported technologies! You can find us at:
I’ve posted slides for my Velocity talk on VividCortex’s blog. The talk explained how we use exponentially weighted moving statistics to generate a meta-metric of abnormality for the time-series metrics measured from MySQL. That’s kind of a mouthful. Maybe you had to be there :-)
The Call for Papers for MySQL Connect 2013 will close this Friday. This is the premier Oracle-sponsored MySQL conference, and a great opportunity for community users and customers alike to connect with Oracle staff from engineering, support, consulting and other organizations, as well as community partners and peers. Maybe you’d like to talk about your experiences integrating one of the new MySQL 5.6 features. Or maybe you’d like to share best practices you’ve developed for integrating with Hadoop. Perhaps you’ve extended MySQL and want to tell the community about it. Take advantage of this opportunity and submit your proposal this week!
I was a guest on the Food Fight Show last week, along with a bevy of really smart people asking and answering tough questions on fault detection. We didn’t talk a lot about MySQL, but given that VividCortex is focusing on MySQL initially, pretty much all of my experience with zero-threshold, zero-configuration fault detection is MySQL-based.
It’s a fun conversation with a lot of insights into the industry, what’s wrong with current monitoring tools, and where monitoring is going. Also, it’s sold out now, but Monitorama is a conference you might be interested in if you’re doing monitoring (and who isn’t?)

Here is a collection of upcoming events that are interesting to me as a MySQL user (in some cases because I’m speaking). I think some of them are must-see events. I am sure I am missing a lot of events, but some of these are only publicized in specific channels, and I wanted to mention them here to help spread the word.
This coming Thursday, Charlottesville’s Neon Guild tech group will co-host a Meetup with a noted Kanban expert.
I’m joining two Meetups soon to talk about building database (MySQL) applications with the Go programming language:[Read more...]
This week we interview Shlomi Noach about the upcoming Percona Live: MySQL Conference and Expo in Santa Clara April 22-25th, 2013. There are 2 organizations with new trainings, too! Ear Candy is a resource with data models, and At the Movies is how to setup and operate Tungsten replication.

I’m really looking forward to this year’s Percona Live MySQL Conference. This is always THE event of the year for me in the MySQL conference circuit. It’s also the first year I haven’t been a speaker! I’ve been a speaker since 2007 but this year things were too uncertain for me to submit a proposal in time.
As usual, the real highlight of the conference is seeing and talking to everyone. Technical sessions are also great, but honestly I can usually study up on technical things without going to a conference. However, nothing can replace the benefit of meeting all the dedicated MySQL community members in the hallways and at meals, and talking to MySQL-related businesses in the expo hall. Year after year, this conference has been what makes things happen:[Read more...]
One of my favorite tools in the Percona Toolkit is pt-query-digest. This tool is indispensable for identifying your top SQL queries, and analyzing which queries are accounting for your database load.
But the report you get from pt-query-digest is only as good as the log of queries you give it as input. You need a large enough sample of query logs, collected over a period of time when you have representative traffic on your database.
You also need the log to include all the queries, not just those that take more than N seconds. The reason is that some queries are individually quick, and would not be logged if you set the long_query_time[Read more...]
OurSQL, the MySQL Database Community Podcast, lists events, conferences and training that are relevant to MySQLers around the world. Gerry and Sheeri get the information for events/conferences/training from Planet MySQL and Oracle, SkySQL and Percona websites. Often, webinars are posted to Planet MySQL a week or 2 before they happen, which is not enough lead time for the podcast. We usually record on Tuesdays and publish on Fridays, with the understanding that not everyone listens to the podcast on Friday. So on the podcast, we talk about events that are at least 1 week from publication date. For example, we are recording today (Tue 20 Nov) for a podcast that will be published Friday (23 Nov). We will talk about events, conferences and training that will happen Sunday, December 2nd or later.
This week we present the MySQL Connect Keynote: Community Perspective—Why Upgrade to MySQL 5.6. This is the entire keynote panel, featuring Sarah Novotny of Meteor Entertainment as the moderator, and panelists Giuseppe Maxia of Continuent, Domas Mituzas of Facebook, Sheeri Cabral of Mozilla and Mark Leith of Oracle. We discussed the main features we thought would be useful to us as well as the community.
I'm speaking at MySQL Connect next Saturday, Sep. 29. My Session is a hands-on lab (HOL) on MySQL Cluster (http://www.mysql.com/products/cluster/).
If you are interested in familiarize a bit with MySQL Cluster this is definitely a session for you.
I will start by briefly introducing MySQL Cluster and its architecture. Then I will guide you through the needed steps to install a local MySQL Cluster, connect to it (using the command line), monitor its logs, and safe shutdown it.
We will hence have a chance to see which are the most common commands using in MySQL Cluster
