Employee +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

“Why can’t I find an MySQL DBAs or Developers?” This morning I got a message from a very perplexed Human Resources person on why their ads on Linkedin were not getting any results. Several such emails, calls, or messages make it to me each week and I would like take this opportunity to cover this subject. MySQL DBAs and Developers are out there but there are reasons why they are not interested in your job posting.

Provide details — “Exciting new position in rapidly growing start up in an expensive city and we want you to know how to program in every programming language, be a recent university graduate (hopefully PhD or higher), with ten years of experience but please be under twenty three years of age.

Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2014: Things I’m looking forward to
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2014 is just two months away. I’m very excited about this year’s event which continues our tradition of open technical discussions and inviting all parties to the table.

We have a great amount of technical talks from Oracle – I’m especially excited about future-focused talks shedding some light about what to expect in MySQL 5.7 and beyond. This content is best covered by developers actually designing the system and writing the code. We also have great coverage of MySQL

How I use twitter to follow the MySQL Community
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Here is a perfect post to read during your holidays :-)
There are many ways to get news on the internet : blogs, rss feeds, facebook, linkedin, twitter…
What I want to talk about here is how I use twitter to follow the MySQL Community and how I stay up to date of the latest news.
I use twitter only for focus on the MySQL news and the MySQL community, that’s why I would like to share this experience with you.

Step 1 : Choose your friends

Q: What is the most complicated with Twitter ?
A: Read all the tweets that we receive every day

Of course it can be complicated and that takes a long long time…
That’s why you must choose who is your best friends carefully.

Except for the MySQL rock stars, I advise you to use TweetStats before to

LinkedIn has what they call "inDays" where employees may so something interesting which may not be directly related to their day job. I spent my inDay by porting my old WL820 project (External Language Stored Procedures) to MariaDB 5.3. The code, as usual, is available on LaunchPad ... To get the branch, simply do: bzr branch lp:~atcurtis/maria/5.3-wl820 The test cases pass... I haven't tested
Hate the dirty recruitment tactics
+1 Vote Up -4Vote Down
I hate it when recruiters reach out to you with a message indicating that they are looking for 'key positions' and when you follow up, the tone changes to "we're just looking for engineers." This happens all the time and the latest company to play this recruitment tactic is LinkedIn. Guys, can't you decide whether you are looking to fill a 'key position' or just an engineering position before reaching out to candidates? I can see that mentioning 'key position' will get a candidate's attention but this is just a low level tactic.

Three JRuby on GlassFish Deployment Stories: Kenai, LinkedIn and JotBot
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -3Vote Down

Arun has added three new, JRuby-based entries to our Adoption Stories. The first story is about Kenai, and is a model story for GlassFish Portfolio: Apache HTTPD Server, Memcached, MySQL, JRuby and GlassFish Server (it is also a bit recursive, as JRuby lives on Kenai).

The other two stories are about LinkedIn Polls and JotBot. JotBot is unusual in that JRuby is used on both client and server side.

Kaj wrote about using Dopplr to keep track of where colegues and friends are traveling and finding out about accidental meetups. (I even use it to track where one of the Inuits collegues work plans)
Now I have never met Giuseppe , but we shared slides before so I'd love to meet him one day .. connecting to him via Dopplr gives me that opportunity .. who knows one day Dopplr will tell me we have matching travel schedules.

Earlier this week LinkedIn announced Tripit as one of their first integrated applications, I was a bit dissapointed I use Tripit to let Dopplr learn about my trips , but I

LinkedIn's MySQL Certified Professionals Community
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
Mark Schoonover has asked me to take over the LinkedIn Group for MySQL Certified Professionals. We are still working out the details but I would like to ask the almost 200 members of that group and any potentially interested others what they would like to see this professional community become.

Personally, I am going to need a platoon of MySQL Exam beta test guinea pigs and this group looks like a great source for talent people.

But what do the members want?

Cisco gives accounts with CCIEs on staff a percentage discount on support contracts? They also get an escallated queue for any support calls. The logic behind that is that a CCIE would not call on something trival and would have triaged the problem. Is this something for this group?

Or do we need t-shirts? Mugs? A special room (rubber padded, drool absorbant carpet)

MySQL Wins at LinkedIn!
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
I was with a customer last week, who leads technology and operations for one of the world's largest companies. We were talking through his priorities for the upcoming year, and on a page filled with various traditional priorities (consolidation, energy management, disaster recovery, regulatory compliance) were two interesting words.

"Open Source."

I asked what that meant, why it was there. He said they'd done an audit of the firm's development activities, and found an overwhelming number ("hundreds") of open source projects that had been completed behind the scenes, beyond management's oversight. The projects were designed to solve problems deemed too expensive or difficult to solve with proprietary technologies - from meeting a tough budget, to automating a new process. And rather than fight the trend, they

What is LinkedIn?s main database server?
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Someone who should know told me that LinkedIn runs its main application on Oracle. So when I saw the press release about MySQL being their database (http://www.mysql.com/news-and-events/generate-article.php?id=1527), I read carefully, and they are not very specific about exactly what MySQL is used for. Depending on how you read it, you could argue that they left open the possibility that the main application database is not MySQL, and the MySQL deal is for something peripheral.

Now, this is nothing but a rotten rumor and I will probably burn in hell for spreading it, but I’d like it to be debunked if it’s false. What is LinkedIn’s main database server? Anyone have the provably correct answer?

PS: I see that LinkedIn is “seeing daily downloads of approximately 200 million.” I didn’t know it was downloadable.

LinkedIn Buys Into MySQL
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Hot on the heels of news that SquareSpace is using Oracle, comes news that LinkedIn is going whole hog with MySQL.

Actually, you could say that LinkedIn is buying into Sun. They are buying the MySQL Enterprise subscription (http://www.mysql.com/products/enterprise/) and they'll be running MySQL on Sparc servers and Solaris 10. They've signed up for Sun Professional Services, MySQL Professional Services (http://www.mysql.com/consulting/), and Solaris Everywhere. I guess you could say that
