2010 O’Reilly MySQL Conference Slides and Videos

Here’s a matrix of all the videos up on YouTube for the 2010 O’Reilly MySQL Conference and Expo. They are grouped mostly by topic, except for the main stage events (keynote, ignite) and interviews. If there’s a detail missing (ie, slides, or there are other videos you know about), please add a comment so I can make this a complete matrix.

Pythian Session Videos: MySQL 2010 Conference and Expo

Here’s a sneak peek at a video matrix — this is all the videos that include Pythian Group employees at the MySQL conference. I hope to have all the rest of the videos processed and uploaded within 24 hours, with a matrix similar to the one below (but of course with many more sessions).

MySQL Conference Notes

This is not my notes about the MySQL conference that just occurred. These are my thoughts about MySQL conferences in general. During this year’s conference, I heard a lot of concern about whether or not O’Reilly would have a MySQL conference, and whether or not Oracle would decide to sponsor. I heard all of the following (in no particular order):

MySQL Conference 2010 – Last day

The morning’s keynotes again were quite good especially the one from Ubunto. I attend another packed Facebook session and one from Ronald Bradford. It was the first time I head him speak and he is very good. I didn’t attend many of the afternoon events because of customer commitments but the remain group at the hotel had a passionate discussion on Oracle role in the MySQL community so its far from over and Oracle has one year to fix it. See you all next year

MySQL 2010 Conference – Day 2

We started with the morning keynotes again today and I was a little surprised at the snipping going on. The first session that I attended today were around MySQL partitioning in the beta releases and beyond. The next set of sessions were on IO bottlenecks, MySQL data warehousing and finally Danil’s Security session. Finally there was the Ignite session that just finished a few minutes ago which was quite entertaining with lots of nice rapid fire topics. That’s all for today…Last day tomorrow

MySQL Conference 2010 – Day 1

Well the first day has come and gone and I really enjoyed my first day as a newbie. The keynote from Oracle was well received, they touched on the new Beta version of MySQL and the new mysql enterprise which to a trained oracle eye is looking more and more like Grid Control. The end result is providing more instrumentation to help the DBA but I am a little disappointed that a lot of that instrumentation is not actually in the database itself which forces you to buy the product.

Gearing Up for MySQLConf 2010

I’m looking forward to traveling to San Jose for this year’s MySQL Conference. If there’s anything that can trump the drama of conf two years ago, where we observed how Sun would handle its new property, and then the drama of last year, where we observed how Oracle would handle the pending acquisition, it’s going to be the drama around this one — the first MySQLConf since the Oracle/Sun merger has been finalized and approved.

Hotsos Symposium 2010 — Battle Against Any Guess Is Won

What’s unusual about this session is that it’s not some technical stuff that I usually do but a more conceptual and motivational talk. Could I pull it off? Well, I think it went fairly well in general even though I did identify few rough places and my lack of English language mastering. Might need to work a little bit more on the flow of the presentation. We had quite a few good laughs. Later, people in the next hall were asking about it and Dan was making the jokes on the stage so it must have been loud. Anyway, I think nobody fell asleep and I managed to get people thinking about the topic. I received many “thank you” notes yesterday and compliments on a good session so by the end of the day I was more and more pleased. Thanks everyone for attending and especially big thanks to those of you who brought to my attention examples from their own battles.
