FOSDEM 2021 MySQL Devroom: the Committee

The MySQL Devroom is pleased to announce the committee that will decide on the talks to be presented for this totally new format of the next FOSDEM edition.

MySQL Document Store Tutorial

When I tell people that they can use MySQL without SQL they tend to be skeptical.  But with the MySQL Document Store you can do just that with a new NoSQL API and in this case there is no structured query language.pre-FOSDEM MySQL Days (which is sold out and there is a waiting list) is my tutorial on using the Document Store.  Those in my session will be able to see how to use the MySQL Shell (mysqlsh) to connect to a MySQL server and save data without have to do the many things a DBA used to have to do in the past such as normalize data, setup relations, and several other tasks.  Plus the schema-less Document Store means you can alter your data needs without having to do an endless series of ALTER TABLES.

dbdeployer community - Part 2: Percona XtraDB Cluster

This was not on the radar. I have never been proficient in Galera clusters and related technologies, and thus I hadn’t given much thought to Percona Xtradb Cluster (PXC), until Alkin approached me at FOSDEM, and proposed to extend dbdeployer features to support PXC. He mentioned that many support engineers at Percona use dbdeployer) on a daily basis and that the addition of PXC would be welcome.

I could not follow up much during the conference, but we agreed on making a proof-of-concept in an indirect way: if several nodes of PXC can run in the same host …

dbdeployer community - Part 1: TiDB

After a conference, when I take stock of what I have learned, I usually realise that the best achievements are the result of interacting with other attendees during the breaks, rather than simply listening to the lectures. It might be because I follow closely the blogosphere and thus the lectures have few surprises in store for me, or perhaps because many geeks take the conference as an excuse to refresh dormant friendships, catch up with technical gossip, and ask their friends some questions that were too sensitive to be discussed over Twitter and have been waiting for a chance of an in-person meeting to see the light of the day.

I surely had some of such questions, and I took advantage of the conference to ask them. As it often happens, I got satisfactory …

FOSDEM 2019 – Percona Presentations

For those not familiar with it, FOSDEM is an amazing, free entry, full on celebration of open source that takes place in Brussels, Belgium every year. This year the event was held over the first weekend of February. Fringe events, such as the Pre-FOSDEM MySQL day hosted by Oracle MySQL, and the community dinner that follows, provide an opportunity to network.

In case you didn’t make it to FOSDEM this year, here are links to Percona’s presentations from the event. Organizers video and share online every talk from every dev room, a phenomenal achievement in itself. All credit to the volunteers who run this show.

Database Dev Room: Hugepages and databases presented by Fernando Laudares …
