Social Networks for MySQL Community

One of the things about working with MySQL Community is trying to reach you all. If you are reading this then we have reached you.  Talking about community is frankly about where our community exists, where you chat and feel comfortable. To that end we've created a poll about where you might be intrested in hearing \*from\* us. Please, do let us know which social network you are interested in here from us!

There is no ulterior motive, the poll is anonymous, but it gives us some crucial information on where you want to interact with us, or where we might begin to ask the questions.

Check out the poll.

OSCON Tutorial - Scaling a web application (mostly PHP/MySQL)

A quick blog post from the OSCON floor where I just finished a 3.5 hour tutorial on "Scaling a Web Application (mostly PHP/MySQL)". To be honest I submitted this talk as a 45 min talk and clicked the wrong button and ended up being handed a tutorial which I think turned out to be a good thing. After all, we could spend days and years talking about scaling.

One of my goals in this presentation wasn't just to talk about tips and examples, but also talk about the general business of scaling and creating scaling plans, scenario planning or capacity planning. This I believe is almost always more important than coming up with the small tips that fix a site when you have a problem!

Thanks to Ronald Bradford for showing up for the last hour of the presentation and helping out, it's good to have help and from a knowledgeable expert as well :)

Slides are now on Slideshare.
