This Thursday (March 4th,
15:00 UTC - slightly later than usual), Robin Schumacher will present MySQL Column Databases. If you're doing Data Warehouse with your databases this is a must-attend, but it's also interesting to learn what typical other scenarios there are for using column-based storage engines, and how column databases work in the first place.
For MySQL University sessions, point your browser to this page. You need a browser with a working Flash plugin. You may register for a Dimdim account, but you don't have to. (Dimdim is the conferencing system we're using for MySQL University sessions. It provides integrated voice streaming, chat, whiteboard, session recording, and more.)
MySQL University is a free educational online program for engineers/developers. MySQL University sessions are open to anyone. All sessions (slides & audio) are recorded; the links will be on the respective MySQL University session pages which are listed on the MySQL University home page.
Here's the tentative list of upcoming sessions:
- May 27: Improving MySQL Full-Text Search (Kristofer Pettersson)
- June 10: Securich - Security Plugin for MySQL (Darren Cassar; we've set up that second session because unfortunately recording of the original session didn't work)
As you can see, there are big gaps in the upcoming months. Care to fill them by giving a MySQL University presentation? If you'd like to be a speaker, have a look at this blog article!
