As mentioned here and after talking to a few people we have created a meetup page, http://www.meetup.com/Madrid-MySQL-users-group/ and proposed the first meeting on Thursday, 4th July. If you are interested and in the area come along and say hello. It should be interesting to see a few others who work in the field.  If you can let us know you are coming so we have an idea of how much interest there is.

Madrid MySQL Users Group worth creating?
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I’m interested in meeting up and sharing experiences about using MySQL and managing MySQL servers with people here locally in Madrid. I had a quick look around and could see no MySQL user groups locally, so it might be nice to create such a group and exchange ideas over a beer, coffee or cola every once in a while. If you’re in Madrid and are interested please let me know. I’ve created a temporary  email address: madrid-mysql-users-2013 AT wl0.org (careful with the domain), which you can contact me on to confirm an interest.  Oh and I’d expect these meet ups to be in Spanish, but that’s not a requirement.

Estoy interesado en reunirme y compartir experiencias sobre el uso de MySQL y administración de servidores de MySQL con la gente aquí en Madrid. He echado un vistazo en Internet y no he visto ningún grupo de usuarios de MySQL a nivel

How MySQL Innodb works and how realestate.com.au configures their databases
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
I  gave a lightning talk on MySQL Innodb and how realestate.com.au configures their databases to the DevOPS Melbourne meetup last night.

My slides can be found here.

Simply some take aways are

  • Use Innodb for everything (unless another engine is appropriate)
  • Having the working set in bufferpool makes MySQL Innodb fast by eliminating those foreground randrom reads of tablespace
  • Use a RAID controller with BBU and write back cache for transactional log performance

Thanks To Evan Bottcher for owning and organising the meetup!

I'll be one of two speakers at the next Seattle Web Technology Bi-Weekly Meet up on Nov 21 at the Citrus Lounge.

They've sexed it up a little by calling it a face-off between Windows Azure and Amazon EC2  (no prizes for guessing which side I represent) but really it's going to be a primer on the Platform-as-a service and Infrastructure-as-a-service models. I expect some lively discussions during Q&A.

We have two engineers from SkySQL who will be talking at the MySQL London Meetup on the 18th July and we welcome anyone who wants to chat to us to sign-up and come along.

We also have Mark Riddoch coming along to talk about the work on our Reference Architecture toolset.

Effective MySQL Meetup in NY

A few months ago Ronald Bradford took it upon himself to reinvigorate the MySQL community in NY. It was then that Ronald came up with EffectiveMySQL, a much needed breeze of fresh air in the big apple’s for us MySQL users.

This coming Tuesday, 26th April 2011, there is going to be the second (of many more to come) presentation, this time about “Silent data truncations because of overlooked configuration / design”. The actual title is: “MySQL Idiosyncrasies That Bite” presented by Ronald Bradford himself in midtown Manhattan. More details can be found here.

Presenting "Real-Life Use Cases From Data Administration Hell" at LAMySQL

If you're in the Los Angeles area on Feb 15, come hear my talk at LAMySQL inspired by learnings from real-life experiences. In addition to hearing a very unique and interesting talk, you can win an AppleTV thanks to awesome folks at @NoodleYard.

Real-Life Use Cases From Data Administration Hell

Data is the most valuable asset of an organization because it's irreplaceable.

Yet, we hear about f**k ups related to data administration every day by startups and organizations of all sizes. Sometimes it's no one's fault. Sometimes it's the fault of a drunk friend who shouldn't have been [wherever he was] at the first place.

Yet, at other times, the disaster could have been prevented. Sometimes, these f**k ups are

Speaking at MySQL Meetup in Northern Virginia
+1 Vote Up -1Vote Down

The closest thing I know of to a “Northern Virginia MySQL Meetup” is the Sterling Database Data Solutions Group. I got in touch with the organizer and we scheduled a meeting next Wednesday July 28th. I’ll be presenting, and so will someone from Fusion-IO, a solid-state storage vendor. This is on short notice, so tell your friends about it! It would be great to grow a strong monthly meetup presence in this area.

Here’s the abstract I sent: “This talk covers best practices to help you get the most out of MySQL performance. It assumes you know a database well, though it need not be MySQL. We’ll cover several angles of the topic. Configuration is usually the first

Training Updates
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I wanted to provide an update on two things:

  • Firstly, we have opened registration for InnoDB/XtraDB training in Los Angeles (Nov 18th).
  • The second is that while I am in New York City for training (Oct 29th), I'll be giving a (free) talk at the MySQL Meetup group there (Oct 28th).

We love to speak at Meetup groups.  If you are an organizer feel free to let us know you are interested.  There's no guarantee that we can get schedules to align - but there are a number of Percona consultants that travel regularly.

MySQL User Groups on meetup.com - sponsorship - ask Open Query
+2 Vote Up -1Vote Down

This is about the ending of the sponsorship of the mysql.meetup.com user groups by Sun/MySQL and their suggested move to Facebook.

If people want to move to Facebook, that’s fine. For those who want to stay but don’t have the local funding, I have an offer for you. Contact Open Query, and we’ll sponsor your group for the coming months. This is not open-ended, I think a more permanent solution is important (moving, sponsorship, whatever) but I want to make the effort for the community to prevent any groups from disappearing now just because of this.

I was the one who originally set up the agreement with meetup.com when they first started charging for meetups (and it turned out to be a very good business model for them!). When that change was announced, quite a

MySQL User Groups: Facebook is not mandatory
Employee_Team +1 Vote Up -1Vote Down

Several people commented on our last blog post or contacted us via our Twitter account, asking questions and raising concerns about migrating the MySQL user group organization to FaceBook. It seems like there is some confusion that we would like to address: you are not required to move to FaceBook. This was just a recommendation, you are of course free to choose whatever service you prefer to manage your MySQL user group. In fact, you are of course welcome to continue using Meetup.com for this! However, be advised that you will have to take care of any occurring fees by yourself from now on, as the sponsorship agreement between MySQL and Meetup.com was not renewed.

And if Facebook is not your cup of tea, there are other services that

Using Facebook Groups over Meetup.com
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We’ve had MySQL meetup’s organised thanks to mysql.meetup.com for years now, and its sad to see the relationship end in about a fortnight. Never fret, because it seems that Facebook can do all that, and more.

Migration

If you’re the meetup organiser, and you checked the Members list, or even attempted to download it, you’ll be disappointed. You get a CSV file, with the name of the person, some other metadata, if they’re on the mailing list (chances is yes to all), and the URL of the member profile. What’s missing? An email address.

So while its nice to have a CSV copy of the member list, it will not assist you in any migration, whatsoever. Totally data lock in :-(

Mailing list/message board

Keep in mind that you’ve got mailing lists and message boards on meetup.com.

MySQL User Groups : migrating event management to Facebook
Employee_Team +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Background

For several years, MySQL User Groups have been organizing their meetings with Meetup.com, a service that simplifies event management. However, MySQL User group organizers received a surprise message from Meetup.com a few days ago.

We were all taken by surprise by Meetup's sudden announcement and allegation that MySQL "did not want to sponsor" the users groups, because there is a valid agreement between MySQL and meetup.com. The agreement is still in effect, ending on June 10, 2009.

Apparently, there was some miscommunication inside Meetup.com, because the group organizers received a message stating that they should now pay for meetup services, which they used to get for free, thanks to MySQL sponsorship.

It took us a few

New Meetup Event in London

If you live near London or in the South East, mark your calendars! A new meetup event is coming this week.

We will meet @6pm this Wednesday at:

The Lamb
94 Lambs Conduit St
Bloombury
WC1N 3LZ London

From MySQL, there will be Andrew Morgan, Mark Baker and myself.

As usual, there isn't a strict agenda, the main topic will probably be the outcome of the recent conferences in Santa Clara, the MySQL User Conference and the Percona Conference. We have lots of tech stuff to cover - Mysql 5.4, MySQL Cluster 7, Drizzle and Xtradb, just to mention few.

I hope to see you there!

P.S. As you know, we cannot comment on the recent Oracle acquisition, so you have these options:
A) don't ask and enjoy the evening
B) buy us few pints and expect non-sense from us :)
