Open Communities in Madrid - June 18-19


I am going to Madrid, Spain, to participate in the Open Communities Forum on June 18-19.
As usual with Sun open events, the agenda includes several actors in the open source arena, such as MySQL, Java, Open Solaris, with topics ranging from web development to mobile integration.
It looks promising, and I look forward to this event, which is my first one in Spain.
On the first day, I will do an introductory talk about MySQL, and a more technical workshop for advanced users. The second day will be mainly dedicated to meeting users in the area, but I will also do a guest appearance in a talk about database testing.

Cal Poly - A success


The MySQL Campus Tour 2009 started very well at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, CA.
Despite the warm day, which would have tempted many attendees to desert the conference and go to the nearby beaches, there was a full room, with 82 people, many of them standing.
The presentation was appreciated (and so was the pizza that Sun had delivered to the classroom). I did the main part, while Sheeri was actively contributing with witty and informational remarks.


Most notable, after the session, we continued the cultural exchange to a local restaurant that bears my name (correctly spelled!), where this heap of bread caught my eye. Thanks to …

My favorite tutorial at the UC2009 : Build and release management



I am looking forward to the MySQL Users Conference and Expo 2009. Since I am a tutorial speaker, my choice of tutorials to attend is limited. Upon completion of my duties, I will attend Greg Haase's tutorial on Build and Release Management for Database Engineers.
There are many reasons for that. For starting, Greg is the winner of the MySQl 5.1 Use Case competition where he has shown his DBA skills, and then, he is using the MySQL Sandbox among the …

Los Angeles MySQL meetup with Facebook DBA, Chris Schneider


South Californians, mark your calendars! On February 24th at 7,30pm the Los Angeles Meetup Group will host Chris Schneider, Facebook DBA, who will talk about "Scaling MySQL".

Now, if I talk about scaling MySQL, I will refer to personal experience in my consulting career, when 10 million people connected all at once to my customer's web site. You may be interested in the story or simply yawn. But when a Facebook DBA talks to you about scaling, 10 million connection is low traffic, and scaling takes a completely different meaning.

In this meetup, Chris will talk about different methodologies used at Facebook to deal with their scaling issues. If you are near Los Angeles on February 24th, you don't want to miss this …

MySQL University - Quick and easy testing with MySQL Sandbox




As announced by Stefan Hinz, our tireless documentation leader, we are using a new system for MySQL University.

There is no sound delay, and attendees can interact with the presentation by (integrated) chat and by graphical tools.
