MySQLNoSQLCloud 2014 – Edition #3
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I’ve enjoyed visiting Buenos Aires once a year for the MySQLNoSQLCloud event, put together by the awesome people at Binlogic (in particular, their proprietor Santiago Lertora). It’s happening again in 2014, which by my count is the third edition, and there’s a twist: Buenos Aires on 13 & 14 November, and Cordoba on 17 November. It’s never been held in Cordoba before (like an annex event), so I think this could be extremely exciting.

If you’re looking to speak, send Santiago a note at events@binlogic.com (or leave a message here). I’ll put you in touch with him. If you’re looking to sponsor, you get attendees from all over Latin

Percona Live 2014 Impressions
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Three weeks ago I had the privilege of attending my first Percona Live MySQL conference, which was incredible! In particular, there were two things that I found impressive about the conference.

First, was the amount of knowledge sharing and support that MySQL users provide each other; it truly is a community. Coming from EMC, I’ve attended several conferences in the past, but I’ve always considered them more of a marketing focused event, mostly spent doing product launches and company roadmaps and not much time fostering knowledge sharing and informal get-togethers: Percona Live was different. There were well thought out tutorials, information packed presentations, and keynotes rife with practical knowledge culled from the real world. I had many great conversations at our booth with people that have evaluated TokuDB or TokuMX or were planning to as soon as they got back into

Tokutek and Percona Live 2014

I’ve been a little behind in recent blogging efforts, and realized that in less than a month we’ll be back at Percona Live: MySQL Conference and Expo 2014, aka PLMCE. Last year’s PLMCE was my first, as well as the event where Tokutek announced the open sourcing of TokuDB.

It’s hard to believe that a year has gone by, but the customer adoption in both enterprise and community users has been awesome. TokuDB is available from our website for both MySQL and MariaDB, and is also

Big week for Southern California! I will be speaking at the LA MySQL Users Group on Thursday at 7PM in the Oracle Office on 200 N Sepulveda Blvd, El Segundo, CA. We will be in Room 4116 to talk about MySQL 5.7!

SCaLE 12x is THE big opensource show in Southern California and one of the more impressive conference on the planet. It may see a shame to waste temperatures in the low 80s by staying indoor but this show is amazing. So see you the 21st, 22nd, and 23rd at the LAX Hilton.

On the road again - FOSSAsia

It has been a few busy months until now. I have moved from Italy to Thailand, and the move has been my first priority, keeping me from attending FOSDEM and interacting with social media. Now I start catching my breath, and looking around for new events to attend. But before I get into this, let’s make a few things clear:

  • I am still working for Continuent. Actually, it’s because of my company flexibility that I could move to a different country (a different continent, 6 time zones away) without much trouble. Thanks, Continuent! (BTW: Continuent is hiring! )
  • I am still involved with MySQL activities, events, and community matters. I just happen to be in a different time zone, where direct talk with

December is half way through the budget year for the MySQL Community Team and we carefully meter out our small budget to make the most effective use from it. But December is also the time when existing conferences start the tasks of preparing for next year and brave souls who have never been part of a conference start out from scratch to create a new show. The MySQL Community Team would love to help with your conference.

First we need to know about your conference. We do scour the announcement sites like callingallpapers.com and lanyrd.com but your show may have been inadvertently skipped. Tell us the dates, the location, how many people you are expecting, your target audience (PHP Developers, DBAs, left handed actuaries from the

The call for participation at Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2014 is now closed. There have been more than 320 submissions, and this will keep the review committee busy for a while.

One important point for everyone who has submitted: if you have submitted a proposal but haven’t included a bio in your account, do it now. If you don’t, your chances of being taken seriously are greatly reduced. To add a bio, go to your account page and fill in the Biography field. Including a picture is not mandatory, but it will be definitely appreciated.

The call for participation for Percona Live MySQL Conference 2014 is still open. As part of the review committee, I will be looking at the proposals, and I hope to see many interesting ones.

There is a novelty in the submission form. In addition to tutorials and regular sessions, now you can submit proposals for lightning talks, to which I am particularly interested, as I have organized the lightning talks in the past two editions, and I am in charge to continue the tradition for the next one.

If you want to be a speaker at the conference, here are some tips to get your proposal accepted:

  • Propose a topic that you know well;
  • Take some time to write a well thought and meaningful proposal: nothing gets me faster to the rejection button

Hong Kong (OpenStack Summit)

I’ll be in Hong Kong for the upcoming OpenStack Summit Nov 5-8. I’d be thrilled to talk database things with others present, especially around Trove DBaaS (DataBase as a Service) and high availability MySQL for OpenStack deployments.

I was last in Hong Kong in 2010 when I worked for Rackspace. The closest office to me was in Hong Kong so that’s where I did my HR onboarding training. I remember telling friends on the Sunday night before leaving for Hong Kong that I may be able to make dinner later in the week purely depending on if somebody got back to me on if I was going to Hong Kong that week. I was, and I went. I took some photos while there.

Walking from the hotel where we were staying to the Rackspace office could be

MySQL Connect Conference was a great success and I am really happy for being

exciting features in the upcoming MySQL 5.7 and released a very early alpha
version of MySQL Fabric which is a framework for managing farms of MySQL
servers.

I am on my way to Argentina, where I will be speaking at the MySQL NoSQL & Cloud Conference & Expo.

I have two talks: one on my pet project MySQL Sandbox and one on replication between MySQL and MongoDB (using another project dear to me, Tungsten Replicator.

It’s my first visit to Argentina and I will try to look around a bit before the conference. And I look forward to see many ex colleagues and well known speakers at the conference. The lineup includes speakers from Percona, EffectiveMySQL, PalominoDB, MariaDB, SkySQL, Tokutek, and OpenStack.

Code of Conduct: It’s a Misnomer
+1 Vote Up -1Vote Down

For me, a Code of Conduct is not actually guidelines for how to act. For me, a Code of Conduct is what to do if there is a problem with someone’s conduct. When I get on a plane, I am told what to do in case of emergency – here are the exits, here’s how to use your life jacket and oxygen mask. I am not told every little thing that could be an emergency – I believe that would be a waste of time and invariably something would be left out.

Similarly, for conferences, listing out all the behaviors that might be problematic is a waste of time, and invariably, behaviors are left out. In my opinion, that is a waste of time. What is NOT a waste of time is giving out the information of what to do in case of emergency.

At the MySQL Connect website, under the “Plan” tab, is a link to the

PLUK Attendees: Show of hands
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down
It will soon be November and we'll be queuing up to register for the Percona Live conference once again. I spoke with some of this year's Percona Live London committee we all agreed that it would be great to arrange a community dinner if there was a community interest. In the past years of the PLUK conference there has not been a community event to attend in order to discuss sessions and make new friends. I for one love the `Pythian-arranged Community Dinner` at Pedro's that occurs annually in Santa Clara during the Percona Live Conference. I know that there are many attendees that do London and CA each year and wager that they'd agree that it's a great event. So lets have it... please r.s.v.p here and if the numbers are good enough we'll schedule something the evening of the tutorials. Please let me know of your interest in the comments below. Thanks :D
