I’m currently wrapping up last things in the office to be prepared for my presentation about MySQL-Statsd at the Percona Live London conference next week. It will be a revised version of the talk I gave at the Percona Live Conference & Expo in Santa Clara, but this time it will be more focussed to the practical side and, obviously, the MySQL-Statsd daemon we open sourced recently, so if you missed that talk or think a follow up is needed you should definitely attend! Slides will also become immediately available after the talk.

I’m also looing forward to attend a lot of other talks, for instance The Shard Revisited:

MySQL Conference and Expo 2013 feelings (#perconalive)
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I wasn’t at the MySQL Conference this year but it was very nice to follow this event from Paris.
Of course I didn’t feel the general atmosphere by visiting booths or met fabulous people.
But it was a great opportunity to offer you a live post about the conference with an external point of view.

Twitter, RSS feeds (yes Google, I still use RSS), Planet MySQL and infiltrators were my best friends during this crazy week.

I would like to summarize the major announcements and events occurs during this tenth edition.

Yes, Oracle was at Percona Live 2013 and it was for the best.

MySQL Community Contributor of the Year 2013
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

First of all, thank you to everyone who nominated me, voted for me, and to those of you who shared kind words with me and congratulated me. It’s humbling to have been awarded one of the “MySQL Community Contributor of the Year” awards for 2013. Many people have asked or wondered without asking why I do what I do, and how I got here. Given the occasion, I thought I would share some thoughts on that.

Early days as a user in web development

I started working with MySQL (and before that, mSQL) back in 1998 while working with a web development company. MySQL worked quite well (and I pretty quickly forgot about mSQL), and I started to learn more and more about it. As many new users at the time, I hit a few bugs or quirks, and poked at the code from time to time to understand what was going on. I continued just being a user of MySQL

    I just wanted to take a moment and thank, notice, what ever you want to call it, but share some love with all those and all things MySQL.

    I read the post Let’s Celebrate MySQL 5.6 GA! – MySQL Community Reception by Oracle by Oracle MySQL Group and it got me to thinking of how proud I am of (and proud to be a part of) the whole MySQL Ecosystem.

    We *should* all celebrate MySQL 5.6 GA! I well remember the 3.22 and 3.23 days, and there were many folks before me already using MySQL!!!

    I love to see how it has continued to grow, the ecosystem and all things MySQL, that is. MySQL is better than ever. MariaDB is better than ever. Percona Server is better than ever. You have great Support options with MySQL/Oracle, SkySQL/MariaDB, and Percona as well – not to mention numerous others. I

    Your chance to define the “state of MySQL”
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    We are very honoured to have been asked to give a “state of the MySQL” keynote presentation at the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo in April.

    While this will not be in any way an official “state of the dolphin” presentation, I think it is fitting given the expansion of the MySQL ecosystem that the Percona Live event includes an independent perspective on the state of MySQL. The full title of the presentation – MySQL, YourSQL, NoSQL, NewSQL – the state of the MySQL ecosystem – reflects that.

    We want to present an independent perspective on the health of the MySQL ecosystem in 2013, drawing on our research and analysis, as well as the views

    Many thanks to all those who attended my talk at the Percona Live London 2012 conference!
    I did put the location in the last slide, but just in case you missed the last slide (or missed my talk) you can find them here:

    I did receive a couple of questions afterwards (in the hallways of the conference) that made me realize that I forgot to clear up a couple of things.

    First of all the essence of shifting the data ownership of a specific GID towards a specific datacenter and ensuring data consistency also means one Erlang process within that very same datacenter is the owner of that data. This does also mean this Erlang process is the only that can write to the data of this GID. Don’t worry: for every GID there should be a process that

    I wanted to extend thanks as others have also about the excellent annual MySQL Conference, now a Percona Live event. This was easily the best run, attended and energetic event in at least the past 3 years. With over a 1000 attendees a well stocked exhibitors hall (and good involvement in the hall), and good talks; there was just a great community vibe. To Terry, Kortney and all Percona staff involved, well done. The event ran on time, I personally did not see or hear of any issues. The only complaint was from many that wanted to attend multiple talks at the same time, another indication of the quality of speakers for the event.

    State of the Dolphin – Opening keynote
    +2 Vote Up -1Vote Down

    Edward Screven – Chief Corporate Architect of Oracle provided the opening keynote at the 2010 MySQL Users Conference.

    Overall I was disappointed. The first half was more an Oracle Sales pitch, we had some product announcements, we had some 5.5 performance buzz. While a few numbers and features were indeed great to hear, there was a clear lack of information to the MySQL ecosystem including employees, alumni and various support services. I hope more is unveiled this week.

    Some notes of the session.
