Here is the schedule for Pythian Employees speaking at MySQL Conference 2011
Well the last busy day here in The Big Apple again a number of very good technical talks. It is not often that the developer of a key piece of a technology gives an intro talk so I grasped it when it came up. Robert Haas gave a very informative talk on the theory behind WAL (Write Ahead Logging) and how it is implemented on PostgreSQL as compared to other DBs. His talk never ventured into the neither world of techno-babel but gave just enough of the technical side to get the understanding out. In the second part of his talk Robert focused on a introduction of the ‘Buzz’ words of WAL that one might have to deal with. There were some other great presentatios as well, I mention a few here
Well day two here at PgEast has drawn to a close and it was another very informative day.Today I concentrated on the more common tasks of a Pg DBA so I attended three talks (four if you count mine) that where rather heavy on the technical side of being a Pg DBA. Keep reading.
The keynote this year was by Ed Boyajian the CEO or EnerpriseDB and he gave an big picture of the DB in terms of market which is a whopping 26$ Billion a year in the US alone of which the the two five players have 90% of the market one having more than half. If you are intrested in finding out about the rest of the presentation I attended keep reading.
Yesterday was actually my second day at Hotsos, 2011.Have a look at my post to see what kind of interesting tidbits I have to share.
For those of you in the New York City area, I’ll be speaking at the NYOUG joint BI/DW and Web SIG meeting. The topic will be a case study of Pythian’s Exadata implementation at LinkShare.
I’m here at the PASS Community Summit 2010 in Seattle, WA. This happens to be the largest SQL Server conference in the world with regards to content, attendees and Microsoft participation. There have been several announcements made in today’s keynote, few of which were just waiting to be blogged about from the insiders since earlier this year. First of which is the release of SQL Server 2008 R2 Parallel Data Warehouse.
I’m happy to announce the winners of this year’s t-shirt and creative blogger’s contest at the Oracle OpenWorld 2010 Annual Bloggers Meetup. Asif Momen, of the Momen Blog was the big winner of the HP X310 DataVault. Although there wasn’t as much participation as I had hoped for the creative blog post contest we have not one, but two AppleTV winners to announce; Sunil S. Ranka for his post: Mapping the Maze, Online Bloggers to Real World Faces: Pythian Blogger Meetup at OOW10 and Mr. Chet Justice, Oraclenerd for his entertaining, 5 part series from the meetup. Definitely an “A” for effort – could you tell he really wanted the AppleTV?
It looks like our lucky recipients of plane rides with Sean D. Tucker had a great time. Pictures are below. Thanks again to Team Oracle for facilitating the flights.
The Oracle OpenWorld 2010 conference is over and life is getting back to normal. However, this is a traditional time for the OOW after-parties and local meetings to discuss the results of the biggest annual event in Oracle space. Our Sydney Oracle Meetup is not an exception.
