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.

Sheeri and the MySQL Camp

If you have attended the latest two MySQL Users Conference and Expo, you will know Sheeri. She was awarded for two years in a row community contributor of the year. And she is seriously determined to see someone else on stage next year. That's why she has been pushing other people toward the community scenes, paving the way for other contributors to surface.

But, you know, Sheeri is really good, and we have been trying to hire her, without much success. So we decided that since she is such a great catalyst, we should let her run part of the show. Embedded in the next MySQL Users Conference and Expo, there will be a MySQLCamp, of which she will be fully in charge.

The Camp will be a place for the community, organized by the community, with no impositions from Sun.

The rules of the game are simple:

  • Only MySQL related contents. This is the MySQL conference, and thus, if you want to hack a videogame or the latest music player, this is not the place to bring it.
  • No advertising. The Camp is a place for hacking code and exchanging technology. If you want to advertise your company, the main conference provides sponsoring and partner agreements that will allow anyone to promote their products.

Sheeri will announce how the proposals should be sent, and how the acceptance process will go. Everything will be public, and the community will have ample space to contribute to the choice. Stay tuned.

I would like to thank Sheeri for having enthusiastically accepted this task.

In the meantime, start thinking about the main conference as well. Start your engines. Submit a proposal!

P.S. For the ones who think that this is a reaction to the OpenSQLCamp, think again. Sheeri has agreed to this role already during OSCON, in July 2008.
