Every day at Percona Live 2017 brings something new and unusual – and on this particular day, we found out that MySQL makes toast.
A lot of people think that with MySQL and open source software, you can do anything. While many might view this metaphorically, Percona’s Alexander Rubin (Principal Consultant) takes this statement very seriously. He demonstrated on Tuesday at Percona Live that not only is possible to accomplish just about anything with MySQL, but MySQL makes toast!
Originally, Alexander took on this project to provide an open source fix for MySQL Bug#2 (MySQL Doesn’t Make Toast). After some effort, and some ingenuity, he provided a patch for the infamous bug.
