MySQLboy @ MySQL Conf 2012 [part 1/2]

The Keynote talks included some words from Peter and Baron of Percona, Martin Mickos now of Eucalyptus Systems, and Brian Aker of HP.

I would like to review this for myself and now will since the HP guys were offering to send beta access to the attendees.

Percona Live MySQL Conference 2012 – Day 1 Review

Day 1 is the first official day of the Percona Live MySQL Conference. It began with two mini keynotes by Peter Zaitev and Baron Schwarz of Percona talking about the history of MySQL and his beginnings in the open source movement, respectively.

The big boom in this social media outlet has enabled an unprecedented sharing of ideas for database professionals. The nature of databases and blogging is to always change, but Log Buffers are here to stay.

My Presentation Slides on Oracle MySQL

Migrating to MySQL might seem attractive from a cost perspective, but is your application really a good candidate for this? What will you need to change? What features of your current database do you rely on, and which features in MySQL might be a good replacement or substitute? What is the likely cost and effort of a typical migration project?

Percona Live MySQL Conference Presentation

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!

Security Around MySQL @ Percona Live MySQL Conference 2012

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.
