MySQL University: Low-Level Locking in mysqld and InnoDB

Happy New Year!

MySQL University sessions are starting again after the winter break. This Thursday, we're beginning with Tim Cook's presentation on low-level locking in mysqld and InnoDB – the good, the bad, and the ugly. Tim works in the Performance and Applications Engineering department at Sun Microsystems. Expect to get some deep insights into the inner workings of the MySQL Server and InnoDB.

Tim's based in California, so note that his session will start rather late for Europeans.

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.

MySQL University is a free educational online program for engineers/developers. MySQL University sessions are open to anyone, not just Sun employees. Sessions are recorded (slides and audio), so if you can't attend the live session you can look at the recording anytime after the session.

The session address (Dimdim URL) for all sessions is:

http://webmeeting.dimdim.com/portal/JoinForm.action?confKey=mysqluniversity

Please bookmark this address, since it will remain valid for all future MySQL University sessions. Remember, though, that the meeting room will open only 15 minutes before the session starts.

Dimdim is the conferencing system we're using for MySQL University sessions. It provides integrated voice streaming, chat, whiteboard, session recording (slides and voice), and more. All you need to do to attend MySQL University sessions is point your browser to the address given above.

All MySQL University sessions are recorded, that is, slides and voice can be viewed as a Flash file (.flv). You can find those recordings on the respective MySQL University session pages which are listed on the MySQL University home page:

About

mysqlf is a common typo on the #docs IRC channel of the MySQL documentation team. It shows a high (some might say, dangerous) degree of identification with MySQL. Trying to pronounce it will probably result in tongue injuries.
