An exciting and busy day yesterday – lots of good talks, good conversations and good beer! Back at the sessions this morning and the first keynote of the day by Sam Ghods of Box: “MySQL: Still the Best Choice for Mission-Critical Data”
In this post I provide a brief overview and my own comments of a few presentations I attended today at the 2012 MySQL Conference. Enjoy!
The last Keynote was from none other than The Brian Aker, a keynote on the New MySQL Cloud Ecosystem. He was formerly the Director of Architecture for MySQL and also the creator of Drizzle. He is currently a fellow at HP, leading their cloud architecture group.
The next keynote is from Marten Mickos, now with Eucalyptus systems, previously CEO of MySQL AB. He’s talking about making LAMP a Cloud. No surprises there, Eucalyptus is the leading open-source cloud computing platforms for on-premise use.
Here it is finally – the MySQL conference 2012 starts with the Keynote Sessions. The first keynote speech is by Peter Zaitsev, founder of Percona and a very smart guy and also by Baron Schwartz (Percona), another very smart guy, the brains behind a number of toolkits for MySQL.
A very well attended Pedro’s dinner – I didn’t count, but we had 9 tables of 8-10 people or so – dare I say almost a 100 people? Lots of beer, margaritas and good conversations! Here are a few pictures from the event

Here is what we have planned for Collaborate 12:
Thanks to everyone who attended my presentation “Queues, Pools and Caches” at Hotsos 2012. I had a blast and I hope you did too. I posted the slides and paper on SlideShare for your enjoyment. The paper is by far more complete and contains a lot of material I had to leave out of the slides. There were many questions asked after the presentation, so I thought I’ll post a short FAQ to address those:
