Between flying for about 15 hrs tomorrow and then the 2008 MySQL Conference & Expo where I’m presenting and running an Exhibitors booth, fat chance I’ll get to look into this much over the next week.
Chief Operating Officer (COO),
The official press release of my commencement at PrimeBase
Technologies can be now found at
Ronald Bradford strengthens management team and new open source initiative.
I’m very excited to be the COO, that’s Chief Operating Officer, rather impressive if you say it out loud a few times. My close friends and MySQL colleagues in the know in New York were also most impressed I’ve made CxO status during celebrations in recent previous weeks. My title was under wraps until I’d started.
What does COO mean at PrimeBase Technologies? I’m being charged with a number of things. I will responsible for the new Business Solutions division which includes helping to define the product road map for …[Read more]

So, take your photo with other community supporters — they’ll also be wearing their open source t-shirts. You can upload photos to www.flickr.com/groups/mysqlcommunityphotoday.
Well at least your MySQL database world.
As Paul eluded to, PrimeBase Technologies has a project to provide synchronous replication for MySQL in a High Availability environment. It is more then an idea, there is a plan.
Is it possible?
What are the use cases?
How can you use it?
Would you use it?
Some input to date. We need these questions and more, and we seeking more input for discussion.
Unfortunately the opportunity to hear any input during a presentation is left to the last day of the conference, so we have created a BoF session on Tuesday night for a round table discussion if necessary. We encourage people to bring specific cases and situations for feedback, the reasons why MySQL Replication, MySQL Cluster, DRBD/HeatBeat or any other solution does not satisfy your needs, and what …[Read more]
Updated On good advice from Sheeri I made a few comments clearer.
We have proposed that the integral “MySQL Community Photo Day” be on Thursday April 17 2008, the final day of the MySQL Users Conference.
Wear a t-shirt from an open source community project on Thursday, whether a PrimeBase PBXT one or your favorite open source project (of course I prefer the first option). Get your photo taken with the masses of community supporters. If your not attending this year, this doesn’t mean you can’t also contribute a photo yourself from what location you are from. Save a saving fund for next year but get us a photo.
It doesn’t have to just be Thursday, we will accept photos at any
time before then. Upload a photo and win a prize. (Baron you
definitely get chocolate)
We have created a Flickr group called “MySQL Community Photo Day” at …
I’ll be following closely the progression of Storage Engines available in the MySQL Database server, well soon to be available when 5.1 gets to GA (hopefully by end of Q2 which is what we have been told). Tick, Tick, time is running out.
PrimeBase XT (PBXT) and Blob Streaming is obviously my clear focus, actually now working for PrimeBase Technologies, the company which I want to note for people is an Open Source company, committed at providing an open source alternative to the other commercial players. You also have at the MySQL Conference talks on the the existing InnoDB from Innobase (a subsidiary of market RDBMS leader Oracle). There is a …[Read more]
Here I am at my desk sporting the PrimeBase supporters t-shirt that will be available at the exhibitors booth at the 2008 MySQL Conference. The front is rather uneventful with the official logo, but the back will be worth the experience. So everybody interested in supporting PBXT as the transactional storage engine for MySQL developed by the community and for the community, please come and see us and mention the secret password.
We have been placed way back in the right hand side of the exhibitors hall at booth 518, in front of the Open Source and OEM providers.
Indeed I have a goal of launching a consolidated site of my online presence at ronaldbradford.com at some time soon, and even now I have found I’ve made some SEO 101 mistakes, just in my testing site, and my temporary placeholder.
As a database expert I see plenty of database 101 mistakes with most clients, so part of why my site is going nowhere is I don’t want to make SEO 101 mistakes, especially as I’m not launching a new site, but a migration of existing content to one site.
I see nobody at O’Reilly has made improvements to the redirection mess of the MySQL Conference website as described by Farhan Mashraqi in Someone please change mysqlconf.com redirection, and so rather then linking to …[Read more]
The Conference Speakers of the 2008 MySQL Conference provides some common and interesting names of companies not common in MySQL circles such as eBay, Microsoft Corporation, HP, Symantec. I see speakers outside of MySQL from countries including USA, Canada, Brazil, Germany, Japan and Australia.
I did some data analysis of the speakers list. There are 150 speakers, there are 45 from MySQL. Other companies with multiple speakers include Sun Microsystems, Kickfire, Linbit, Cafepress, Open Query, Proven Scaling, Standford Linear Accelerate Center, UC Berkeley, Siz Apart, The Hive, Zmanda, MySQL Performance Blog, Infobright, Digg, Grazr and of course PrimeBase Technologies.
Only two MySQL speakers have listed “MySQL/Sun” the rest are “MySQL”. I wonder what the policy is here? You have “Oracle / Innobase” and “Innobase / Oracle Corp.” …[Read more]
It’s just three weeks now before the 2008 MySQL Conference. Good to see my mug shot on the front page (see screen shot below).
I will still be presenting my session Top 20 DB Design Tips Every Architect Needs to
Know, however as a departing MySQL Employee I’ve had to give
up the chance to present the “MySQL for Oracle DBA’s Bootcamp”
tutorial, content that I developed for MySQL specifically and
have already presented three one day seminars in New York, San
Francisco and Washington DC.
Update March 26 2008. I should clarify that I notified MySQL as part of my exit items that I would not be able to present the Tutorial. I would very much like to, and being the author of the content I am well qualified, however as this was developed for MySQL and …
