Here are the slides from my presentation “From Requirements to Partitioning and Sharding and Everything in Between”. A big thanks to all the attendees for their interest and questions. I got a lot of questions, and the audience was definitely very engaged!
Here’s what happening today at the 2012 MySQL Conference.
This post is just a quick update as to what is going on at the conference today. Here are the keynotes from Mark Callaghan’s presentation, entitled “What Comes Next for MySQL”.
Yesterday was an exciting and busy day – lots of good talks, conversations, and beer! Let me take you back to the morning sessions and the first keynotes of the day, Sam Ghods of Box: “MySQL: Still the Best Choice for Mission-Critical Data”.
The last Keynote was from none other than The Brian Aker. He was formerly the Director of Architecture for MySQL and also the creator of Drizzle. He is currently a fellow at HP, leading their cloud architecture group.
The next keynote is from Marten Mickos, now with Eucalyptus systems, previously CEO of MySQL AB. He talked about making LAMP a Cloud. No surprises there: Eucalyptus is the leading open-source cloud computing platforms for on-premise use.
Here it is finally: The MySQL conference 2012 starts with the Keynote Sessions. The first keynote speech was by Peter Zaitsev, founder of Percona and a very smart guy, and by Baron Schwartz (Percona), another very smart guy, the brain behind a number of toolkits for MySQL.
Pedro’s dinner was full! I didn’t count, but we had 9 tables of 8-10 people or so – dare I say almost 100 people? Lots of beer, margaritas, and good conversations! Here are a few pictures from the event.
If you’re at the conference, please come join us for the MySQL Community Dinner at Pedro’s and meet some of the people behind Pythian. We’re always hiring so if you’re interested, please attend the talks and tutorials being presented by Pythian folk, talk to us, or check out the job openings!
The Pythian Group added another feather to its cap today. Our Nicklas Westerlund passed his MySQL Cluster DBA Certification exam, making him part of an elite group of 57 MySQL Cluster Certified DBAs worldwide, and now two here at Pythian, the other being Augusto Bott.
