Speaking at Percona University Sept 12th
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I’ll be joining Percona for a free day of MySQL education and insight at their upcoming Percona University Washington DC event on September 12th. My topic is accessing MySQL from Google’s Go programming language. I’ve learned a lot about this over the past year or so, and hopefully I can help you get a quick-start.

If you’re not familiar with Go, it’s the darling of the Hacker News crowd these days. Anything with “Go” in its title gets to the front page for at least a little while! Go is a great systems programming language. It’s safe to say I’ve fallen in love with it, and it’s now my favorite programming language of all those

Building MySQL Database Applications with Go
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Last night at the Golang-DC meetup I spoke about building (MySQL) database applications with Go. The meetup was well attended and people were very enthusiastic about Go. I spent a few minutes talking about Go in general, how VividCortex uses Go (we’ve built our agents, API servers, and all backend processes with Go), why we like it, some of the nice things it enables like making it easy to build very resilient programs, and then I gave the presentation, which I’ve embedded below.

Afterwards the discussion ranged to a lot of related topics. This was the best part of the evening for me. There were really great questions on a variety of topics, and insightful answers from everyone.

Designing a database interface for programmers
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

How do you connect to and converse with your database of choice (MySQL, in my case)? Chances are it’s largely formed by the programming language you choose. I’ve worked with a variety of programming languages. Anytime I begin learning a new one, I am reminded again that there’s more than one way to skin a cat.

Over the last few years, I’ve mostly programmed in Perl and shell. The shell interface to MySQL is simple: the mysql command-line tool. There is not much to think about. In Perl, however, the standard is to use DBI. I have grown accustomed to DBI over the years, but that doesn’t mean I like it. I think it’s one of the worst database APIs I’ve seen. The abstractions it uses (there are only two object abstractions: connections and “statement handles”) are awkward to the extreme.

Do We Need a New Programming Language for Big Data?
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down


 

I'm the boards of two companies (Pentaho, Revolution Analytics) that are starting to see a lot of customer traction around Big Data. More and more companies in media, pharma, retail and finance are doing advanced analysis, reporting, graphing, etc with massive data sets. It made me wonder what other areas of the technology stack might evolve with the trend towards Big Data.  Obviously, there's new middleware layers like Hadoop and Map Reduce, and we're also seeing the emergence of
