A taste of MySQL certification on Facebook

Do you plan to take the MySQL Certification?

Or, are you just curious to know how good you are at MySQL ?

If you use Facebook, and chances are that you do, then you should give a try to the MySQL Quiz Application.

Well, it is not like the real certification, but it's fun, and some of the questions are hard enough to give you pause.

The MySQL Quiz Application was created by Dave Stokes, the MySQL certification manager. Thanks, Dave!

Los Angeles MySQL meetup with Facebook DBA, Chris Schneider


South Californians, mark your calendars! On February 24th at 7,30pm the Los Angeles Meetup Group will host Chris Schneider, Facebook DBA, who will talk about "Scaling MySQL".

Now, if I talk about scaling MySQL, I will refer to personal experience in my consulting career, when 10 million people connected all at once to my customer's web site. You may be interested in the story or simply yawn. But when a Facebook DBA talks to you about scaling, 10 million connection is low traffic, and scaling takes a completely different meaning.

In this meetup, Chris will talk about different methodologies used at Facebook to deal with their scaling issues. If you are near Los Angeles on February 24th, you don't want to miss this meetup.
