The Vitess team had a successful presence at Kubecon + CloudNativeCon North America 2020. This year’s event was in a virtual format. It ran from Nov 17-20. We had 2 talks, a project booth and 3 office hours sessions. In addition, we had mentions in 2 major keynote talks. Day 1 # Day 1 was a non-keynote day. It opened relatively quietly for us. We had 25+ attendees at our office hours session hosted by maintainers Alkin Tezuysal, Deepthi Sigireddi and Derek Perkins.

What a great event ! I got very positive feedback for this extended preFOSDEM MySQL Day 2020.
Before my summary, I wanted to thank again all speakers and attendees. Without you this event won’t even exist. And thank you to ICAB for hosting us yet another time !
As you may know, we had 2 parallel tracks for 2 consecutive days. We had very valuable technical content from the MySQL developers and also from the external community members who talked about their favorite database.
There was a large interest in MySQL NDB Cluster and it was obvious that the nice presentations we had, encouraged people to try the worlds highest performance open source in-memory database (and they can even test it on their laptop with DBDeployer). The NDB users were also happy with the new stuff and impressive numbers that Bernd …[Read more]
Last week, we had two exceptional preFOSDEM MySQL Days in Brussels. A lot of MySQL Engineers presented their work but also different MySQL Users. I will publish soon an overview of the two days, but today let me share with you an interview I did with Giedrius Jaraminas, engineering manager of MySQL team in Uber.
“MySQL is heart of the Uber infrastructure“, this is how Giedrius started his presentation “Group Replication in Uber“.
Q1: Tell us about yourself, and your experience with MySQL
A1: I am a database guy for 28 years, but I am relatively new to MySQL – I am a manager of MySQL team for only 3.5 years.
Q2: Tell us about your company, and how MySQL is used.
A2: MySQL is the main offer as a relational database, also – it is used as the …[Read more]
The schedule of the preFOSDEM Day is now available !
We had a lot of proposals to deal with. Also this is a MySQL event where we, the MySQL Team has the possibility to show to you, our Community, all what we have working on to improve MySQL but also new stuff. We also invite some of our friends from the MySQL Community to talk about their experience.
I think we did a good selection and propose you new content. We are extremely happy to have Saverio Miroddi from TicketSolve talking about MySQL 8.0, Uber talking about InnoDB Cluster, and Facebook about Binlog.
As you can see, we will have 2 rooms, where one will be dedicated mostly to SQL and Optimizer topics but also tutorials.
You can also see that this year we also want to put some spot lights to MySQL NDB Cluster. You will see what is it, how is it used and what’s new. We will also have 2 community speakers sharing their MySQL NDB knowledge: Giuseppe Maxia, …[Read more]
Hello dear MySQL Community ! As you know FOSDEM 2020 will take place February 1st and 2nd. After having received many, many requests we decided to organize for the 4th year in a row the pre-FOSDEM MySQL Day… with a big change, for this edition the event will be called “pre-FOSDEM MySQL Days” !
We have decided to extend that extra day related to the world’s most popular open source database to 2 days: 30th and 31st of January at the usual location in Brussels.
We will also have the usual sessions track but most probably a second room for those who would like to get their hands dirty in the code !!
Please don’t forget to register as soon as possible as you may already know, the seats are limited !

Mid September, MySQL Community, MySQL Customers and MySQL Engineers will be in San Francisco to share their experience and present the new features of your favorite database !
The event will be held in Moscone South (just Mirko Ortensi‘s Hands-on Lab will be delivered in Moscone West).

Don’t forget that you need to register for this reception but no OOW pass is required. Please register here !
Back to the conference, you can find the full schedule for the session in the …[Read more]
So, typically, a Percona Live (or MySQL User) Conference blog
would start off with some mention of the fact that it’s great to
be meeting up again in Santa Clara, California, the birthplace of
the MySQL User Conference, and a continuous fixture on the yearly
MySQL community agenda.
But no, not this time!
On this occasion, the Percona Live Conference blog starts off by pointing out that for the first time since its inception (as far as I can recollect), the MySQL User Conference, i.e. Percona Live Conference (in North America) doesn’t take place in Santa Clara, but rather in Austin, Texas.
Never having been to Texas before myself, I’m looking forward to that innovation, discovering the new surroundings and seeing whether that changes anything or not to the familiar “feel” of a Percona Live / MySQL User Conference.
By the way, there’s still time to …
At the end of the month, some engineers of the MySQL Team will be present in Austin, TX !
We will attend the first edition of Percona Live USA in Texas.
During that show, you will have the chance to meet key engineers, product managers, as well as Dave and myself.
Let me present you the Team that will be present during the conference:
The week will start with the MySQL InnoDB Cluster full day tutorial by Kenny and myself. This tutorial is a full hands-on tutorial where we will start by migrating a classical asynchronous master-replicas topology to a new MySQL InnoDB Cluster. We will then experience …[Read more]
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 …[Read more]
