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!
In about 4 hours at 2PM PDT, I’ll be giving my talk “Security Around MySQL” at Ballroom A at the Percona Live MySQL Conference 2012. It’s a summary and guide of practical and easy-to-implement security tips around MySQL and the application. These tips were all gleamed from my years at start-ups (some of which I worked on and some which I founded) and from my experience at Pythian.
In this post, I provide a brief overview and my own comments on a few presentations I attended today at the 2012 MySQL Conference. Enjoy!
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.
The purpose of technology is to make life easier and more quality-oriented. It is this virtue of technology that makes it evergreen and sustainable. Its unique feature is its innovative nature. Technology blogging is a way for the technologists to rant about technology and throw light at known and unknown corners with new angles. This Log Buffer Edition covers those angles and more. Enjoy!
A new trial version of DBD::Oracle is on CPAN. The meat of this release is the awesome work Martin Evans did in the murky core of the beast. He explains it better, but basically his magic results is a much faster DBD::Oracle on thread-enabled perls. This being said, the changes he did are significant (2.3K lines changed according to Git), and we would be very grateful for anybody finding the time to try and install that trial version before it goes live (which, unless something wrong is found, should be in 2 weeks).
The weather is changing, clocks are being adjusted, and the changes at the technological front are as usual rapid, frequent, and over-whelming. Keeping up with such rapid-fire changes is a project in itself. In the database triangle of Oracle, SQL Server, and MySQL, patches, updates, features, tricks, and tips are booming, and so is this Log Buffer Edition.
