Good news ! The MySQL, MariaDB & Friends Devroom has been accepted for FOSDEM’19 ‘s edition as announced earlier!

This event is a real success story for the MySQL ecosystem; the content, the speakers and the attendees are growing every year.

The first big change for this 2019 edition is that the MariaDB Foundation (Ian) is joining my efforts to build this Devroom. Don’t forget that FOSDEM takes place in Belgium, and our motto is “l’Union fait la Force” [“Unity is Strength”].

This Week in Data with Colin Charles 27: Percona Live Tutorials Released and a Comprehensive Review of the FOSDEM MySQL DevRoom

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

Percona Live Santa Clara 2018 update: tutorials have been announced. The committee rated over 300+ talks, and easily 70% of the schedule should go live next week as well. In practice, then, you should see about 50 talks announced next week. There’s been great competition: we only have 70 slots in total, so about 1 in 5 talks get picked — talk about a competitive ratio.

FOSDEM

FOSDEM was truly awesome last week. From a Percona standpoint, we had a lot of excellent booth traffic (being outside of the PostgreSQL room on Saturday, and not too far out from the MySQL room on Sunday). We gave away bottle openers — …

There’s a lot happening for FOSDEM this week — so expect a longer report of some sort next week.

A friend, Yanwei Zhou, DBA at Qunar in China, gave an excellent presentation in Chinese on how they use Percona Toolkit. …

On InnoDB's Online DDL

I am completing my preparations for the upcoming FOSDEM talk, and one of last things I wanted to do in frames of them is a quick review of known bugs and problems in current (as in MySQL 5.7 GA) implementation of so called "online" DDL for InnoDB tables.

In my previous post I already shared my view on another important InnoDB feature, persistent statistics. Unlike that, I do not really hate online DDL. I just try to avoid it if possible and use tools like pt-online-schema-change or gh-ost instead. Not because it is not documented properly (the …

Next week in Brussels: Parallel Replication at the MySQL Pre-FOSDEM Day

FOSDEM is next weekend and I am talking about Parallel Replication on Friday, February 2nd at the MySQL Pre-FOSDEM Day (there might be tickets left in case of cancellation, attendance is free of charge).  During this talk, I will show benchmark results of MySQL 8.0 parallel replication on Booking.com real production environments.  I thought I could share a few things before the talk so here it

This Week in Data with Colin Charles 25: Meltdown/Spectre still dominate, FOSDEM approaches and Timescale gets funding

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

Still on Meltdown/Spectre, this time MariaDB Corporation has published Meltdown Vulnerability Impact On MariaDB Server – interesting the comparison between glibc/tcmalloc. Worthy Facebook thread about this too, with a bit of chat about MongoDB performance. Officially MongoDB says a degradation of 10-15%. ScaleGrid has a good post, in which they test MongoDB against …

FOSDEM MySQL Community Dinner – Friday 2 Feb 2018 – Tickets Now Available!

FOSDEM is back in town, folks, and as usual, there will there be a MySQL and Friends Devroom. At this point, we can’t really remember what came first, was it the annual dinner or the devroom? Our memories of the past few years are particularly hazy on that…  Can’t imagine why.

Following a great tradition of dining together in style with members from all over the community, we have rented a by now familiar private space at ICAB, more detailed directions below.

A couple of things changed compared to the last couple of years. The community dinner will take place on Friday night 2 February, following the …

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. Today though, “MySQL now consistently matches or outpaces MariaDB when it comes to development and releases, which in turn is increasing the demand on us for providing those upgraded versions of MySQL by our users.” And …

FOSDEM MySQL & Friends Devroom 2018 – schedule

The schedule of the next edition of the MySQL & Friends Devroom is now on-line also on the official FOSDEM website.

As you can see we by shrinking the last two talks (no break) we were able to add one extra session. The committee selected the next one, which mean I will have the honour to present again at FOSDEM too.

I hope you will enjoy this day. Don’t forget the MySQL Community Dinner (more to come soon about this on this website) and the extra free day organized by the MySQL Team on Friday (you need to …
