Looks like our blog has turned into a MySQL blog over this week, so I have to do something about it. Luckily, I have zillions of pending posts, so I’ll start with posting my presentations materials from this conference with my remarks on how it went in general.
Beth Breidenbach, having braved a week thick with posts from the MySQL Conference, has published the 42nd edition of Log Buffer, the weekly review of database blogs, on Confessions of a database geek.
We are assisting one of our clients with a data conversion project and have used a feature that I was surprised so few people knew about. It is the multi-table insert.
Day three at MySQL Conference 2007
Starting out bright and early again. I have a feeling Martin and Yannick might gang up on me for waking them up so early every morning and making sure we are on our way at 7am sharp, but it’s worth it. We did make it here for the keynotes.
It seems Google couldn’t wait to have their code evaluated for merging into the main source tree, and decided to release it to the general public as patches to 4.0.26 for the community to evaluate. What have we added and enhanced?
My presentation went well, I had a packed room, no standing room either. It is quite interesting that in spite of the fact that there have been a few tuning presentations already, there’s still interest in more. A quick question revealed the room was quite evenly split between DBAs and Developers..
Here you go — slides of the presentation. I will probably blog on the presentation and any interesting questions I got, but that will have to wait till after the conference.
The keynotes started with MÃ¥rten Mickos, the CEO of MySQL AB giving us a “State of MySQL” address. Keeping all the people together in a company where 70% of the employees work from home and are distributed across hundreds of cities across the world is no easy task, and I have a lot of respect for him.
I snuck into the 5.1 new features session halfway through but definitely well worth it. Lots of new features coming out in 5.1 though Brian Aker admits some of them are not quite production-ready yet, so don’t go deploying it just yet.
