- Texas LinuxFest – July 8-9 2016 – Austin, Texas – I’ve never spoken at this event before but have heard great things about it. I’ve got a morning talk about what’s in MariaDB Server 10.1, and what’s coming in 10.2.
- db tech showcase – July 13-15 2016 – Tokyo, Japan – I’ve regularly spoken at this event and its a case of a 100% pure database conference, with a very captive audience. I’ll be talking about the lessons one can learn from other people’s database failures (this is the kind of talk that keeps on changing and getting better as the software improves).
MariaDB is in Debian/unstable now, and its great to see that we already have a Japanese po-debconf translation (in under a month!). The last time I was in Tokyo, Japan we seemed to have great interest in MariaDB, especially with the backing of MariaDB.com/SkySQL investment dollars and the MariaDB Foundation to keep things real.

- MySQL NoSQL Cloud – 15-16 October 2013 – Buenos Aires, Argentina. This is the second such conference happening in Buenos Aires, and this time there are plenty of speakers who didn’t make it around the first time. Cost is nominal.
I am giving a talk in a couple of weeks at the 2010 MySQL User Conference that will touch on use cases for NOSQL tools -vs- More relational tools, the talk is entitled “Choosing the Right Tools for the Job, SQL or NOSQL”. While this talk is NOT supposed to be a deep dive into the good, bad, and ugly of these solutions, rather a way to discuss potential use cases for various solutions and where they may make a lot of sense, being me I still felt a need to at least do some minor benchmarking of these solutions. The series of posts I wrote last year over on mysqlperformanceblog.com comparing Tokyo Tyrant to both MySQL and Memcached was fairly popular. In fact the initial set of benchmark scripts I used for that series actually has been put to good use since then testing out …[Read more]
