Last month I gave a presentation at the PHP UK Conference on the InnoDB storage engine.  I was a last minute speaker, and I want to thank them for the time-slot and their hospitality at short notice.

The video has been posted online:

Meet Xaprb at the training course in NYC this Friday
+2 Vote Up -4Vote Down

I’ll be helping Morgan Tocker deliver the second half of his training course for MySQL Developers/DBAs in New York City in a few days (more Percona training). It was a snap decision at the last minute, but I’m hoping I’ll still get to meet some folks there. If we’ve corresponded over email or blog comments and you would like to get together, ping me in the comments here!

If you’re in the New York City area and you use MySQL, you should consider attending this course, too. Morgan knows his stuff and has written a good curriculum. Attendees give his courses excellent feedback, and the price is very reasonable.

Yesterday I attended CPOSC 2009. The conference was great. It was very well run, and I liked the sessions. I would definitely attend this conference again, and will recommend that Percona sponsor it next year. I attended the following talks:

  • Stop Worrying and Start Monitoring with Nagios (Andrew Libby)
  • DRBD, Network Raid, High Availability and General Awesomeness (Brian Gorka)
  • MySQL Performance Tuning for non-DBAs (Tom Clark)
  • Wonderful Desktop Tricks, and Aesthetics (Seth Jerome)
  • Jump Start Django: The Web Framework for Perfectionists with Deadlines (Rob Yates)
  • Watching and Manipulating Your Network Traffic (Josiah Ritchie)

And then of course I gave my own talk on Maatkit (
