Call for papers (with lightning talks): Percona Live MySQL Conference 2014

The call for participation for Percona Live MySQL Conference 2014 is still open. As part of the review committee, I will be looking at the proposals, and I hope to see many interesting ones.

There is a novelty in the submission form. In addition to tutorials and regular sessions, now you can submit proposals for lightning talks, to which I am particularly interested, as I have organized the lightning talks in the past two editions, and I am in charge to continue the tradition for the next one.

If you want to be a speaker at the conference, here are some tips to get your proposal accepted:

  • Propose a topic that you know well;
  • Take some time to write a well thought and meaningful proposal: nothing gets me faster to the rejection button than statements like “I want to talk about X, I will …

Severalnines at Percona Live London 2013: MySQL Cluster Performance Tuning, exhibitor space with live demos, discount code...

November 4, 2013 By Severalnines Percona Live London MySQL Conference - 11-12th November, 2013

We’re particularly excited about this year’s Percona Live London MySQL Conference. The line-up of speakers & topics looks excellent and it’s good to see speakers from Oracle, Percona, the MariaDB Foundation (amongst others) scheduled at the same event. It demonstrates not just the diversity of the ever broadening MySQL ecosystem, but also the fact that there really is room for everyone to contribute, participate in and advance MySQL in manifold directions while still retaining a certain amount of uniformity.

And this is how we will be contributing to the event ...

common_schema: speaking at Percona Live London, Nov. 2013

In one week's time I'll be presenting common_schema: DBA's framework for MySQL at Percona Live, London.

This talk introduces the rich toolset known as common_schema. It is free, open source, extremely useful in solving DBA & developer tasks, and is the next best thing ever invented next to SQL pie charts.

I'll introduce:

  • Views, with which you can detect and terminate idle transactions, blocking transactions; roll your range partitions; find duplicate keys; block/unblock accounts; get fine grained privileges per account; find AUTO_ICNREMENT free space; ...
  • Routines: do meta executions such as eval(); get query checksums; duplicating accounts; killing suspicious connections; security auditing; parsing JSON data; ... …

Percona Live London 2013: an insider’s view of the schedule

With the close of call for papers earlier this month, the Percona Live London conference committee was in full swing this past week reviewing all of the many submissions for November’s Percona Live London MySQL Conference.

The submissions are far ranging and cover some really interesting topics, making the lineup for Percona Live London really strong! What the committee looks for in a submission is how much “value” a talk will bring to the conference – this is to say it needs to be far more that a product demo. As such, real-world experiences are receiving much more favorable reviews, along with talks that cover methodologies the attendees will …

MySQL Conference and Expo 2013 feelings (#perconalive)

I wasn’t at the MySQL Conference this year but it was very nice to follow this event from Paris.
Of course I didn’t feel the general atmosphere by visiting booths or met fabulous people.
But it was a great opportunity to offer you a live post about the conference with an external point of view.

Twitter, RSS feeds (yes Google, I still use RSS), Planet MySQL and infiltrators were my best friends during this crazy week.

I would like to summarize the major announcements and events occurs during this tenth edition.
 

Oracle at Percona Live!

 
Yes, Oracle was at Percona Live 2013 and it was for the best.
I invite you to watch this keynote from …

Percona Live 2013 keynotes: followup questions and discussion

Here are a few questions remained open for me from Percona Live 2013 about things that have been said during keynotes; I will appreciate a discussion on comments. Here goes:

Question #1

Brian Aker (HP) asks Simone Brunozzi (Amazon) what the underlying technology for DynamoDB is. Simone says can't disclose. Brian says: "it's MySQL!!". Simone says: "can't disclose". Brian insists: "it's MySQL!!"

Seriously? I will be very much surprised to learn that DynamoDB uses MySQL; it doesn't make sense to me. Why would Brian Aker say that though? Did he just mean to tease Simone or is there something I just don't get?

(Yes, Brian?)

Question #2

common_schema booth on Percona Live 2013

common_schema booth in Percona Live 2013 (someone left their soup on our table)

Allen Kinnard

Yay! I got a booth!

I confess it was mostly deserted. My hero Allen Kinnard, whom I've never met before, was kind enough to volunteer to occupy the booth.
So between him and me, both of course also looking to visit other booths and talk to people, the common_schema booth was only moderately attended.

Well, this was the DotOrg Pavilion: free booths for free & open source projects (e.g. OpenStack, PhpMyAdmin, etc.).
We both did our best to explain common_schema to the visitors.

The booth was actually titled "common_schema & openark-kit". However I don't …

Slides from my talk: common_schema, DBA's Framework for MySQL

I've just uploaded the slides from my talk: common_schema: DBA's framework for MySQL

My talk was well attended, and I was fortunate to have a warm and engaged audience. Thank you to all those who attended, and thank you for those who provided feedback! Was happy to be able to present my work a great group of people.

You can find my slide either on Percona Live's website, or on Slideshare, as well as embedded right here.

I set two aims to my talk:

  1. To have the audience know how to download and install …

Impressions from Percona Live 2013

At the airport, trying to sum up my impressions from Percona Live 2013 conference in Santa Clara.

Woo! Hard to sum up four excellent days. Shall I review the great talks I've been to? The keynotes? The well organized events?

You know what, skip it. There was ONE thing that overshadowed everything. It was the ONE thing for me that was the pure essence of the conference and its greatest joy:

Meeting and talking to a great many great people!

I was fortunate to meet up with so many people; none that I planned; things just went in such way that I engaged in so many conversations with so many people. I found myself talking about hamsters, peacocks, living in the village, living in the city, working from home, commute, relocation, working with your spouse, life in Israel, life in Argentina, prisons in the US, having many children, gun control, politics (heaven forbid!), fruit, vegetables, breakfasts, …

Speaking at Percona Live 2013: common_schema, lightning talks

In two weeks time I will be giving these talks at Percona Live:

  • common_schema: DBA's framework for MySQL: an introduction to common_schema, my evolving server side solutions project. This will be a revised version of the talk I gave at Percona Live London; I have felt some weaknesses during that talk, which I've thrown out, letting room for cool stuff. I will discuss common_schema's various views, interesting and useful routines, the power of QueryScript, and a brief intro to the newcomer
