Let’s connect at MySQL Connect

MySQL ConnectLater this week I’m traveling to San Francisco to attend MySQL Connect – which looks like an exciting event to be at. I’m going to deliver two talks at this show, both on Sunday – MySQL Indexing Best Practices for MySQL 5.6 and Optimizing MySQL Configuration for MySQL 5.6. I will also be there for a Percona Toolkit BoF on Saturday and at our Booth (6004) during select expo hall hours.

What I’m looking forward to at this event the most is an update on MySQL technology both from Oracle’s engineering team as well as MySQL users. People from Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Paypal and Mozilla will also be sharing their respective MySQL experiences at the show.

One of the talks I’m most excited about: Dimitri Kravchuk’s MySQL Performance Tuning and Best Practices tutorial on Monday is likely to be great. Dimitri always provides in-depth analyses and has a deep understanding of source of Performance Issues. Another is Performance Schema and ps_helper by Mark Leith. Chances are you do not know as much about MySQL 5.6 Performance schema as you should and Mark is the guy when it comes to practical use of Performance Schema. Another talk is What’s New in MySQL Database 5.7 is a presentation I hope to give us a good preview of MySQL Future.

See you in SF. Let’s Connect at MySQL Connect!

September: A busy month for MySQL events

September 2013 MySQL eventsNow with summer winding down and school back in session, we get into a very busy time with many great opportunities to discover more about MySQL with several excellent MySQL events.

At first I wanted to cover all autumn events here but if I did that this post would be far too long. So instead I’m focusing on a few wonderful MySQL events that I’m going to be involved with in September.

In a few short days we’re running Percona University at Washington, D.C. This free event on September 12 provides a great opportunity to learn about latest developments in the MySQL ecosystem as we at Percona see it. I personally will be speaking about Percona XtraDB Cluster, MariaDB 10.0 and Percona Server 5.6, and MySQL 5.6. We also have other great speakers talking about Continent Tungsten, Hadoop, MySQL Cluster, Percona Toolkit as well as insights on using MySQL with Go and best DBA Practices.

On September 18 I’m going to the MySQL Meetup in San Francisco where Ryan Lowe will be speaking about Running MySQL 5.6 on Amazon RDS. The space for these events is limited and they often can’t accommodate everyone, so do not delay and register if you can make it to either one.

In Europe we have Frederic Descamps speaking at the Open Source For Business conference in Prato, Italy September 19-20.  Fred will talk about Percona XtraDB Cluster as well as installing and managing MySQL like a true devops. I especially wish I could attend this talk as Fred has a lot of insights and practical experience with applying a DevOps approach to MySQL installations.

September 21-23 I’ll be at MySQL Connect in San Francisco. This is a great MySQL event that Oracle puts together as part of Oracle Open World Week, which presents great opportunities to talk with Oracle’s MySQL engineering team and learn about new products and the MySQL roadmap. There will also be many great community speakers this year as well, sharing their insights and war stories from MySQL’s front lines. I personally will deliver two presentations, “MySQL Indexing: Best Practices for MySQL 5.6” and “Optimizing MySQL Configuration in MySQL 5.6.” These are great talks for both for MySQL beginners and more advanced users which I have updated to cover MySQL 5.6

At Percona we talk and exhibit at many shows throughout the year so we have created an Events page to keep you up to date. You can also subscribe to our Events newsletter for the latest news and updates on this front.

Have a wonderful September!
