MySQL University: Building MySQL Releases on Unix

This Thursday (October 8th, 13:00 UTC), Jörg Brühe will give a talk on Building MySQL Releases on Unix. Jörg will describe the tools used by the MySQL Build Team for release builds on Unix-style platforms, and present a script to simulate the essential parts of that process locally on a developer's home machine. He works at the MySQL Build Team, so you can expect in-depth insights and instructions.

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

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.

Here's the schedule for the upcoming weeks:

  • October 15: The Spider Storage Engine (Giuseppe Maxia)
  • October 22: Dual Master Setups With MMM (Arjen Lentz)
  • October 29: MySQL scalability on SPARC & INTEL X5500 (Nehalem) (Benoit Chaffanjon)
  • November 12: Gearman for MySQL (Giuseppe Maxia)
  • November 19: memcached Functions for MySQL (UDFs) (Patrick Galbraith)
  • December 3: Practical Full-Text Search in MySQL (Bill Karwin)

The schedule is not engraved in stone at this point. Please visit http://forge.mysql.com/wiki/MySQL_University#Upcoming_Sessions for the up-to-date list. On that page, you can also find the starting time for many time zones.

MySQL University: Using DTrace with MySQL

This Thursday (December 18th), Martin "MC" Brown will talk about using DTrace with MySQL. MC is the Solaris (and, naturally, DTrace and ZFS) expert on the Sun Database Group documentation team. He's helped the openSolaris team port MySQL to openSolaris.

Note that we'll be using a new session address / Dimdim URL:

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

You can 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.

MC's MySQL University session will start at 14:00 UTC / 8am CST (Central) / 9am EST (Eastern) / 14:00 GMT / 15:00 CET / 17:00 MDT (Moscow).

This is the last MySQL University session of this calendar year. In January, we'll continue with a set of sessions on performance and scalabilty – straight from the Sun QA labs. Find the tentative 2009 schedule on the MySQL University home page.

Have a great Christmas season/winter break, everyone!

MySQL University: Being host and presenter at the same time

Today, Martin "MC" Brown gave an overview of MySQL on openSolaris. Due to Yours Truly arriving late MC had to start a new Dimdim session (sorry for that!). So MC was the host and the presenter at the same time.

Interestingly (and annoyingly), this seemed to have a bad effect on sound quality. To most attendees, MC's voice sounded garbled. To me, he sounded like at least one octave too low. The sound recording, though, sounds all fine. I suspect that being the host of a Dimdim session has a bad effect on voice quality (the same thing has happened to me regularly, but I thought it was due to packet loss over my wifi or something). So, for the next MySQL University session on using memcached in MySQL deployments (also presented by MC) I'll make sure to be there on time so that I can be the host.

Here's the MySQL University schedule for the rest of this year:

MySQL University: MySQL on openSolaris

This Thursday (November 13, 2008), Martin "MC" Brown will give an overview of MySQL on openSolaris. MC is an expert on MySQL and Solaris, and has helped the openSolaris team to port MySQL to that platform. The session will start at 14:00 UTC/BST (15:00 CET).

For those of you who've never heard the term before, MySQL University is an educational program for engineers from Sun/MySQL and the MySQL community. It's free and open to anyone. MySQL University focuses on MySQL internals and on Sun technology that can be used in connection with MySQL.

Here's the updated schedule for the rest of this year. Note that 14:00 BST currently translates to 14:00 UTC – sorry for getting this wrong with the last announcement. As always, check out the schedule on the MySQL University Wiki page on MySQL Forge – there may be last-minute changes.

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.
