(hopefully more free formats will come soon, the all volunteer AV team has been absolutely amazing getting things up this quickly).

Come Hear about MySQL Cluster Internals at the DOAG Conference
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down
If you’re in Nuremberg Germany next week (November 15-17th) and have anything to do with Oracle or their products, then the DOAG (German Oracle User Group) conference is the place to be. I will be representing SkySQL Ab at the conference, giving a talk about the internal architecture of MySQL Cluster. The talk will look at the internals of MySQL Cluster and at the different processes that ensure the High Availability of MySQL Cluster. Beyond that, the talk will also look at how the data is stored on the data nodes, how different types of queries are resolved in the cluster, and how a primary key lookup is executed differs significantly from a tree index search. The talk will also look at the resources involved in resolving the queries.
So if any of the above sounds interesting come and listen to my talk in room Singapur at 13:00 on Tuesday!
Speaking on Tuesday: HailDB and Dropping ACID: Eating Data in a Web 2.0 Cloud World
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I’m giving two talks tomorrow (Tuesday) at the MySQL Conference and Expo:

HailDB: A NoSQL API direct to InnoDB, 2:00pm, Ballroom D

Dropping ACID: Eating Data In A Web 2.0 Cloud World 3:05pm, Ballroom G

The HailDB talk is all about a C API to embed an InnoDB based relational database engine into your application. Awesome stuff (also nice and technical).

The second talk, “Dropping ACID: Eating Data in a Web 2.0 Cloud World” is not only a joke that only database people get, but a humorous and serious look at data integrity and reliability as promised by the current hype. This was quite well received at linux.conf.au in January. So, if you weren’t in Australia in January this year, then certainly come along and see how you go heckling an Australian.

Fixed in Drizzle: No more “GOTCHA’s”

At the upcoming MySQL Conference and Expo, I’m going to give a Thursday afternoon (2pm) session entitled Fixed in Drizzle: No more “GOTCHA’s”. I plan to have a lot of fun with this session..

If you go back to the very start of when I started submitting code to Drizzle (June 2008) – I was going and fixing some of my favourite “gotcha’s” inside the code: BUILD/ scripts that didn’t build the way releases would, wrappers on POSIX functions with different (and inconsistent) semantics, NETWARE support, a non thread safe client lib,

My presentation from OpenSourceDays2011
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Here are the slides from my talk at Open Source Days 2011 on Saturday. The talk was about MariaDB and other parts of the MySQL development community outside of MySQL@Oracle.

For me, the most memorable part of the conference was the talk by Noirin Shirley titled Open Source: Saving the World. Noirin described the Open Source Ushahidi project and how it was used during the natural disaster crisis in Indonesia, New Zealand and other places.

Now, there is a long way from implementing group commit in MariaDB to rescuing injured people out of collapsed buildings, and not all use of Free Software is as samaritan as Ushahidi. Well,

Again this year, I will be speaking about MariaDB and stuff at the OpenSourceDays2011 conference in Copenhagen, Denmark. The conference will take place on Saturday March 5, that's just over a week from now! The program is ready and my talk is scheduled for the afternoon at 15:30. Hope to meet a lot of people there!

(I will be sure to make the slides from my talk available here afterwards, for those of you interested but unable to attend.)

Here is the abstract for my talk:

Latest news from the MariaDB (and MySQL) community

A lot of Open Source software projects got transfered to Oracle last year as part of the acquisition of Sun Microsystems. Not everybody in the affected Open Source communities have been happy with this transfer, to put it mildly, and projects like

MySQL Performance Tuning at PHPBenelux 2011 Conference
Employee_Team +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I’ll be giving a workshop/tutorial on MySQL Performance Tuning at the PHPBenelux 2011 Conference in Belgium. It’s 3.5 hours and I am sure I can discuss the new MySQL v5.5 (http://www.mysql.com/news-and-events/web-seminars/display-597.html) release too.

Lots of stuff will be discussed, including configuration, understanding status variables, finding bad queries, schema tips, etc..

If you got particular ideas or concerns and are attending, just leave me message or just comment on this blog post. I’ll see if I can fit it in.

Maybe we can fix the deadlocks in Belgian politics too? Ah, who am I kidding..

Free software and business in Sardinia

On June 10th and 11th I attended two interesting workshops, both related to the Italian Free Software conference, and both organized by private institutions that have expanded their boundaries and created two quite lively international events.
The first event was held near Pula, in an innovation laboratory encased in a beautiful forest. The Technological Park of Sardegna Ricerche is a place where research and business boil together to produce new companies and to help consolidate existing ones.
The workshop was titled A community for a new business model and it was a show case of a dozen companies, both local and from

There’s a good number of videos appearing online from the MySQL Conference and Expo that was on last week.

Here’s a short list of interesting things to look at if you weren’t able to make the sessions. Obviously, this is from my view as a Drizzle developer. There were other interesting things, but this list is more focused towards where my Drizzle brain is stimulated.

Apparently, my talk at FOSDEM 2010 about Connecting MySQL and Python was the only one about Python? There should be more, or?

I have a hand-out ready in PDF. The slides are not usable without my chatter. It contains a few examples and links. Any comments, corrections, criticism.. are welcome!

The longer version of this talk will be given at the O'Reilly MySQL Conference&Expo 2010 in Santa Clara, California (USA).

MySQL Developers Room at FOSDEM 2010
+9 Vote Up -0Vote Down



I am in Brussels, waiting to attend FOSDEM 2010, one of the biggest open source gatherings in Europe, taking place this weekend in Brussels.
On Sunday, there is a Developers Room for MySQL and Friends, with 14 talks from open source professionals coming from Europe and North America.

The novelty of this round of talks is that thy will be 20 minutes long, rather than 1 hour. This will force all presenters to be more cautious about their timing, and to concentrate their talks on the essential. Even the experienced ones, who have given the same talk several times, will have to make an effort to come to the point in less time. The idea cam from reading

Relax! A Failure is NOT an Emergency - a talk in Melbourne
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
While I'm in Melbourne in a few weeks for training I'm once again visiting my friends at Linux Users of Victoria (LUV). It's been a while since my schedule coincided with their meeting schedule!

I've been invited to do one of the talks (Sandrine Balbo doing the other), and my topic is "Relax! A Failure is NOT an Emergency." which is although somewhat MySQL-related not actually MySQL-specific.

This will be on Tuesday April 7th. You can find more detailed description and location/time info in the LUV announcement.

South Californians, mark your calendars! On February 24th at 7,30pm the Los Angeles Meetup Group will host Chris Schneider, Facebook DBA, who will talk about "Scaling MySQL".

Now, if I talk about scaling MySQL, I will refer to personal experience in my consulting career, when 10 million people connected all at once to my customer's web site. You may be interested in the story or simply yawn. But when a Facebook DBA talks to you about scaling, 10 million connection is low traffic, and scaling takes a completely different meaning.

Last week I gave my first webinar for MySQL (http://www.mysql.com) titled “Bau sicherer LAMP Anwendungen”. The webinar, which was a cooperation between MySQL and my company SektionEins, was held in german, covered SQL-Malware, SQL-Injection, safe programming and some tools to detect and block SQL-Injection attacks.

The recording of this webinar is now available (http://www.mysql.de/news-and-events/on-demand-webinars/display-od-171.html) on the MySQL site.

For those that only want to see my slides they are available on the MySQL site after registration or here.

Because it was a german webinar the recording and slides are in german, too.

Hamburg PHP UG / Lehmanns

Last night I spoke at Lehmanns book store in Hamburg on the new ext/mysqli extension in PHP 5. The talk was a good deal of fun and provided a nice warm up for the upcoming three hour tutorial that Georg and I will give at ApacheCon EU. (Additionally, some sharp audience members caught errors on my slides! :)

Thanks to everyone who attended (about 50-60 people, even though the weather in Hamburg was absolutely fantastic and the talk was in English, rather than German.)

In particular, thanks to Ekkehard Doerre from coolscreen.de and Dirk Eckel from Lehmanns for coordinating the talk.
