webinar on Data Reduction and Smoothing in MySQL

If you have missed Michael McFadden's session at the last MySQL Conference, here's a chance to catch up.

On June 11, at 17:00 UTC Michael McFadden will present at a free webinar, on the subject of Faster Data Reduction and Smoothing for Analysis & Archival in MySQL.

Don't let the "For ISVs" distract you. This session is a collection of very practical and down to earth tips for tasks that can be in the TODO list of any DBA.

In addition to being practical, Michael's advice is justified by rigorous statistical analysis, and the tips he provides have both the benefits of practical testing and a scientific justification.

Did I make you curious enough? I may add that the tips provided in this lesson will privilege SQL instead of external languages coding, but some Python will be there as a bonus for the patient attendees.

FOSDEM 2009 - Boosting performance with MySQL 5.1 partitions

The MySQL Developers Room at FOSDEM was a success. There was a full room (about 80 seats, and many sitting on the floor) throughout the day. We started at 9am with a talk on PBXT, and ended at 17:00. My talk had a large audience and was very well received.

FOSDEM, the Free and Open Source Software Developers' European Meeting

The enthusiasm was quite high also because of a stunt I did during the presentation. It was a creative way of explaining the difference between physical and logical partitioning. I will repeat this stunt at the MySQL Users Conference, during my Tutorial on Partitioning.
Those who were attending today know about it. For the attendees at the Users Conference it will be a surprise.

The high point of the conference was at 1:15pm, with Kaj Q&A session, where we collected quite a lot of feedback.

For the many enthusiasts who followed my presentation, here are the slides.

Thanks to all participants for their stamina. Thanks to Lenz Grimmer for making this possible, and for the FOSDEM organizers for their kind hospitality.
