Get a free copy of High Performance MySQL 3rd Edition!

Want a free copy of High Performance MySQL, Third Edition? If you register before the early-bird pricing expires for the MySQL Conference in April, and use the discount code PL-Book, you’ll get to take a free copy home from the conference!

And now, a status update: I’m currently proofing the QC2 (quality control #2) revision of the book; after this, the book goes to manufacturing. The PDF is now 820 pages, which is a lot of work to proofread. You can imagine how much more in-depth we’ve been able to go with so many more pages.

The free sample online is …

Open Query training at Drupal DownUnder 2012

DrupalDownUnder 2012 will be held in Melbourne Australia 13-15 January. A great event, I’ve been to several of its predecessors. People there don’t care an awful lot for databases, but they do realise that sometimes it’s important to either learn more about it or talk to someone specialised in that field. And when discussing general infrastructure, resilience is quite relevant. Clients want a site to remain up, but keep costs low.

I will teach pre-conference training sessions on the Friday at DDU:

SQL Locking and Transactions – OSDC 2011 video

This recent session at OSDC 2011 Canberra is based on part of an Open Query training day, and (due to time constraints) without much of the usual interactivity, exercises and further MySQL specific detail. People liked it anyway, which is nice! The info as presented is not MySQL specific, it provides general insight in how databases implement concurrency and what trade-offs they make.

See for the talk abstract.

Busy weeks ahead!

I’m speaking at Percona Live, LinuxCon Europe, and And I just co-founded a new company.

I have a few busy weeks behind me, and even busier weeks ahead. If you’ve been wondering why recently I haven’t been updating this space too frequently, here’s why:

OurSQL Episode 60: Charming Data

This week we talk with Giuseppe Maxia (pronouncing his name correctly!) about new features in Tungsten replicator, and go over a lot of news.

There was a lot of news this week! There were three really big announcements at Oracle OpenWorld that relate to the MySQL community:

Oracle released a NoSQL database.
It’s an ACID-compliant key-value data store, with a Java API for put, delete and get operations and includes replication. The data partitioning and distribution is automatic and based on a hash function.

Surge 2011 slides, recap

This year’s Surge conference was a great sophomore event to follow up last year’s inaugural conference. A lot of very smart people were there, and the hallway track was great.

I presented on three things: a lightning talk about causes of MySQL downtime; I chaired a panel on Big Data and the Cloud; and I showed how to derive scalability and performance metrics from TCP traffic. I’ve sent my slides to the Surge organizers, and I understand that they will be posting them as well as integrating them into the video of my session. In the meanwhile you can download my slides from Percona’s presentations page.
