COLLABORATE is all about quality and content, presenters elaborating based on their specific areas(s) or expertise. The show may be elaborate, but “show” is secondary to education. A handful of tier 1 shows throughout the calendar year do just that … primary focus is on the user community, the people who live the software from day-to-day.
I made the epic journey with my Pythian (and former Nokia) colleague Andrew Moore, and once at the conference we met up with more members of our Pythian MySQL team; Marco Tusa, Raj Thukral, and Singer Wang. We all ran into former colleagues at the conference, caught up with old friends and made some new friends. The conference this year was buzzing with enthusiasm, learning, and creativity. I’m delighted to say it delivered everything I anticipated and more.
The Keynote talks included some words from Peter and Baron of Percona, Martin Mickos now of Eucalyptus Systems and then Brian Aker of HP. I was impressed by the new HP cloud product powered by OpenStack and now with an Aker driven DaaS backed by a tuned Percona Server. It was interesting watching the demo video of creating new instances and also the snapshots of existing instances to create cloned instances. I would like to review this for myself and will now that the HP guys were offering to send beta access to the attendees.
Day 1 is the fist official day of the Percona Live MySQL Conference; the day began with two mini-keynotes by Peter Zaitev and Baron Schwarz of Percona talking about the history of MySQL and how he got started in the open source movement respectively. Very nostalgic and I’m sure it brought a tear to a few people’s eyes.
Day 0 of the MySQL Conference is a day unlike any other day. It is, in fact, tutorial day. While regular days of the Percona Live MySQL Conference feature 50 minute sessions, usually split into 40 minute talk and a 5-10 minute question period, tutorials are 3 hour long sessions (with a generous 10 minute break in the middle for those that wish to go to the WC) that provide an in-depth dive into some aspect of MySQL.
Here are my notes on the third session I attended today, titled “MySQL Cluster Performance Tuning”.
Here are my notes from the first session I attended today, titles “Using and Benchmarking Galera in Different Architectures”.
Here are my thoughts on the “Boost Your Replication Throughput with Parallel Apply, Prefetch, and Batching” presentation I attended today, very insightful.
Here`s what happening today the the 2012 MySQL Conference.
This post is just a quick update as to what is going on at the conference today the keynote from Mark Callaghan of Facebook, titled “What Comes Next for MySQL”, just finished, have a look..
