This Week in Data with Colin Charles 20: cPanel changes strategy, Percona Live CFP extended

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

I think the biggest news from last week was from cPanel – if you haven’t already read the post, please do – on Being a Good Open Source Community Member: Why we hesitated on MySQL 5.7. cPanel anticipated MariaDB being the eventual replacement for MySQL, based on movements from Red Hat, Wikipedia and Google. The advantage focused on transparency around security disclosure, and the added features/improvements.

This Week in Data with Colin Charles 13: MariaDB, M18 and YugaByte

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

This week we saw the closing of the CFPs for MariaDB’s user conference, M18. Peter Zaitsev and I submitted for Percona (don’t forget that there is also a developer’s conference tacked on to this event). We don’t have high expectations of getting a talk there, but hey – you never know! I submitted a talk on running MariaDB in the cloud (either hosted on Amazon RDS or Rackspace) or in your own compute instance. Another talk on capacity planning seemed to make sense as well. …

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

This week was exciting from a Percona exposure standpoint. We were at Open Source Summit Europe. I gave two talks and participated in a panel, as the co-located event for the Open Source Entrepreneur Network happened on the last day as well. We had a booth, and it was great to hang out and talk with my colleagues Dorothée Wuest and Dimitri Vanoverbeke as well as all the attendees that popped by.

This Week in Data with Colin Charles 11: Velocity EU London and Open Source Summit Europe

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

I spent all of this week at O’Reilly Velocity EU London. I gave a tutorial, a talk and generally networked with attendees (besides my normal evangelical duties). I’ll write some thoughts on it later (probably in a couple of weeks, as Open Source Summit Europe happens next week – and Percona has a booth there).

This will be a quick, short post.

This Week in Data with Colin Charles 10: MariaDB and Upcoming Apearances

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

Beyond spending time getting ready for Velocity and Open Source Summit Europe this week, there was some feature testing this week that compared MySQL and MariaDB. Naturally, a long report/blog is coming soon. Stay tuned.

Releases

I reckon a lot of folks are swamped after Percona Live Europe Dublin and Oracle OpenWorld, so the releases in the MySQL universe are a bit quieter.

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).
