Staying ahead of MySQL operational problems at Percona Live

Introducing 'MySQL 101,' a new 2-day track at Percona Live 2015!I’ve started my long journey from Florianópolis, Brazil, to Santa Clara, California and I type this words while waiting for a connection flight. Next Wednesday, Daniel Guzmán Burgos and I will be presenting in the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo (PLMCE).

I’m so excited with the new MySQL 101 program that has been added to this year’s event! Along the years I’ve been working as a Support Engineer at Percona I’ve heard two very distinct types of comments amongst others from some people, customers and community in general, about PLMCE:

1) That they went and it was awesome but they found it hard to follow as most of the contents in the program were high level for them;

2) that they wanted to attend the event but just didn’t felt experienced enough with MySQL just yet, so they would wait a year or two before committing to it.

Sometimes I’ve also been asked: “Don’t you guys organize a similar conference, but for beginners ?” Not exactly, I’d tell them, pointing them to the on-demand training that Percona offers, but this isn’t always a good fit for everybody.

Well, I’m glad that this request was reconsidered this year and that we now have an intensive MySQL 101 2-day program: “You send us developers and admins, and we’ll send you back MySQL DBAs.

Daniel and I will be talking about the use of a few key tools of the Percona Toolkit from the viewpoint of day-to-day operations of a MySQL DBA – we’ll showcase how some of them can be integrated to Nagios to improve monitoring. The goal: “stay ahead of MySQL operational problems,“which is also the base title of our talk.

Percona Toolkit is a rich collection of more than 30 command-line tools for MySQL, Percona Server and MariaDB that can help database administrators perform and automate a variety of database and system tasks. Some of the tools focus on diagnostic, some on performance improvement and some others are actually used to fix things. I just love them; they make my day-to-day work with MySQL that much easier!

I hope to see you in Santa Clara this week!

Speaking at MySQL Meetups in Atlanta,GA and Charlotte,NC

Start of the year and time for the first speaking tour. This time I will take my MySQL Indexing Best Practices presentation to Charlotte on January 14 and Atlanta on January 15.

I think this presentation is great for Meetup as it is both providing a lot of very good ready to use practical advice on picking MySQL indexes to people only starting to use MySQL, as well as going into the more advanced topics of MySQL index trickery so even advanced MySQL users will find something new to learn. Meetup format should also allow us more time to go into more details and more practical questions when useful. Bring your own indexing war stories if you’re joining us !

Another great thing about indexing topic is this is something both MySQL Developers and MySQL DBAs and Ops people need to know about so nobody will be bored.
