This Week in Data with Colin Charles 15: Percona Live 2018 Call for Papers and Best Practices for Observability

Join Percona Chief Evangelist Colin Charles as he covers happenings, gives pointers and provides musings on the open source database community.

So we have announced the call for presentations for Percona Live Santa Clara 2018. Please send your submissions in!

As you probably already know, we have been expanding the content to be more than just MySQL and MongoDB. It really does include more open source databases: the whole of 2016 had a “time series” theme to it, and we of course love to have more PostgreSQL content (there have been tracks dedicated to PostgreSQL for sometime now). I found this one comment interesting recently, from John Arundel, “If you’re going to learn one database really well, make it Postgres.” I have been noticing newer developers jump on the …

This Week in Data with Colin Charles 9: Oracle OpenWorld and Percona Live Europe Post Mortem

Join Percona Chief Evangelist Colin Charles as he covers happenings, gives pointers and provides musings on the open source database community.

This week: a quick roundup of releases, a summary of my thoughts about Percona Live Europe 2017 Dublin, links to look at and upcoming appearances. Oracle OpenWorld happened in San Francisco this past week, and there were lots of MySQL talks there as well (and a good community reception). I have a bit on that as well (from afar).

Look for these updates on Planet MySQL.

Percona Live Europe Social

One for the road…

The social events at Percona Live Europe provide the community with more time to catch up with old friends and make new contacts. The formal sessions provided lots of opportunities for exchanging notes, experiences and ideas. Lunches and coffee breaks proved to be busy too. Even so, what’s better than chilling out over a beer or two (we were in Dublin after all) and enjoying the city nightlife in good company?

Percona Live Europe made it easy for us to get together each evening.  A welcome reception (after tutorials) at Sinnott’s Pub in the heart of the City hosted a lively crowd. The Community Dinner at the Mercantile Bar, another lively city center hostelry, was a sell-out. While our closing reception was held at the conference venue, which had proven to be an excellent base. 

Many delegates took the chance to enjoy the best of Dublin’s hospitality late into the night. It’s …

Percona Live Europe 2017 Dublin

We’ve spent a lot of time in the last few months organizing Percona Live Europe Dublin. I want to thank all the speakers, sponsors and attendees for helping us to pull off yet another great event. While we’ll provide some perspectives, thoughts and feedback soon, all the early mornings, jam-packed meetings and the 4 am bedtimes means I’ll probably talk about this event in my next column!

In the meantime, save the date for …

Percona Live Europe Session Interview: MySQL on Docker – Containerizing the Dolphin

One of the widely discussed technologies at Percona Live Europe was the logistics of running MySQL in containers. Containers – particularly Docker – have become a hot topic, so there was a good-sized crowd on day one of the conference for Ashraf Sharif, Senior Support Engineer with Severalnines. He presented his talk “MySQL on Docker: Containerizing the Dolphin”. 

During his presentation, Ashraf shared some recommendations for best practices when setting out on containerizing MySQL. He sees the trend of moving to containers as a progression from the use of virtual hosts.

After his talk on day one of the Percona Live Europe conference, I caught up with Ashraf and asked about his presentation. I was interested in which concepts are most important for …

Percona Live Europe Session Interview: Spatial Data in MySQL 8.0 with Norvald Ryeng (Oracle)

Day one of the Percona Live Europe Conference was a huge hit. The first day of sessions went well. People spoke on many different open source database topics, and talks were well-attended.

One such talk I got to sit in was on Spatial Data in MySQL 8.0, given by Norvald Ryeng of Oracle.

MySQL 8.0 is still in development, but we already see a lot of improvement in GIS support. The latest development release comes with support for around 5000 different spatial reference systems, improved standard compliance and a lot of new functionality. How does it all work, and how can it be used to build applications? 

This talk started with the basics of GIS and spatial data in MySQL: geometries, data types, …
