In January we encouraged you to prepare for the MySQL Connect Call for Papers, indicating how.


While dates are still subject to change, we wanted to let you know that the CFP (for MySQL Connect and Oracle OpenWorld overall) will likely open around March 18th. Remember to prepare your submissions in advance in order to swiftly submit them during the 4 to 5 weeks that the CFP will remain open!

Prepare Now for the MySQL Connect 2014 Call for Papers

As announced last month, MySQL Connect will this year be aligned with Oracle OpenWorld and run from Monday September 29 to Thursday October 2, 2014, in San Francisco.

The MySQL Connect and Oracle OpenWorld Calls for Papers will also open at the same time, and you will most likely be able to submit your sessions between March 4 and April 8 (dates subject to change).

While you will have 5 weeks or so to actually submit your talk proposals, you can already prepare your submissions NOW in order to be ready to submit then, and here is the key information you need to do so. In order to submit a session, you will need to provide:

MySQL Connect 2014, Save The Date!

We're very pleased to announce that MySQL Connect will next year take place from Monday September 29 to Thursday October 2, 2014, in San Francisco. And there will be a welcome reception on Sunday September 28 evening.

During the past 2 years we’ve run MySQL Connect during the weekend prior to Oracle OpenWorld, and we repeatedly got feedback that avoiding the weekend would be better. Well, this is now done! MySQL Connect will be fully aligned with Oracle OpenWorld. This will also enable us to have more room to schedule sessions across the 4 days and to be better integrated within Oracle OpenWorld overall, which was also part of the feedback we’ve got.

We will provide more details down the road but wanted to make sure you could save the dates and make your plans accordingly.

The Call for Papers will likely open in March, so start thinking about your topics now in order to submit them swiftly when it …

MariaDB 10.0.5 storage engines – check the Linux packages

Today before Ivan’s tutorial, he told me that in the 10.0.5 virtual machine images he created, he couldn’t find the Cassandra storage engine. I told him it had to be installed separately, and this is true – you have to install some engines separately!

When you do a yum install MariaDB-server MariaDB-client like the installation instructions tell you to do, you don’t get all storage engines (so running SHOW ENGINES might have you wondering what happened to a bunch of engines). This can easily be seen by doing a yum search MariaDB. On a CentOS 6.4 server with the MariaDB 10.0 repository configured, you should see the following:

MariaDB-cassandra-engine.x86_64 : MariaDB: a very fast and robust SQL database server
MariaDB-client.x86_64 : MariaDB: a very fast and robust SQL database server
MariaDB-common.x86_64 : MariaDB: a very fast and robust SQL …
