MySQL University: GRAPH computation engine for MySQL

This Thursday (November 5th, 10:00 UTC - note the different time for this session!), Arjen Lentz of Open Query will present the brand new GRAPH computation engine for MySQL.

From the abstract: Most of us have had to deal with hierarchies (trees) and graphs (such as friend-of-a-friend style problems), and have thus learn that this is -at best- a bit of a monster to do in an SQL/RDBMS. Until now. The GRAPH engine (GPLv2 licensed) is a MySQL storage engine allowing hierarchies and more complex graph structures to be handled in a relational fashion. In a nutshell, tree structures and friend-of-a-friend style searches can now be done using standard SQL syntax, and results joined onto other tables. http://openquery.com/graph

MySQL University: Dual Master Setups With MMM

This Thursday (October 22nd, 13:00 UTC), Walter Heck will present Dual Master Setups With MMM. MMM (Multi-Master Replication Manager for MySQL) is a set of flexible scripts to perform monitoring/failover and management of MySQL master-master replication configurations (with only one node writable at any time). The toolset also has the ability to read balance standard master/slave configurations with any number of slaves, so you can use it to move virtual IP addresses around a group of servers depending on whether they are behind in replication. For more information, see http://mysql-mmm.org/.

MySQL University: The Spider Storage Engine

This Thursday (October 15th, 13:00 UTC), Giuseppe Maxia will present the Spider Storage Engine. Here's from the abstract: Everybody needs sharding. Which is not easy to maintain. Being tied to the application layer, sharding is hard to export and to interact with. The Spider storage engine, a plugin for MySQL 5.1 and later, solves the problem in a transparent way. It is an extension of partitioning. Using this engine, the user can deal transparently with multiple backends in the server layer. This means that the data is accessible from any application without code changes. This lecture will briefly introduce MySQL partitioning, and then show how to create and use the Spider engine, with some practical examples. The talk covers the latest version of the Spider engine, which includes a condition pushdown feature that increases performance significantly.

MySQL University: InnoDB File Formats and Source Code Structure

This Thursday (October 1st, 14:00 UTC), Calvin Sun will give a session on InnoDB Internals: InnoDB File Formats and Source Code Structure. The InnoDB storage engine provides transactions, row-level locking, and automatic crash recovery. Its on-disk files play a pivotal role for those key features. This presentation describes how on-disk files are structured, how compressed tables are organized, and how long variable-length columns are stored. As we develop new features, it is inevitable for file format changes. We will explain how the new file format management works in the InnoDB Plugin.This talk also covers InnoDB source code structure.

MySQL University: Speakers wanted!

We'd like to fill the remaining session slots for MySQL University this year. Currently, there are 7 available slots in 2009, as can be seen here:

http://forge.mysql.com/wiki/MySQL_University#Upcoming_Sessions

Anyone who has something technical to say about MySQL qualifies as a speaker. MySQL University sessions take place on Thursday afternoons European time, and normally have between 20 and 30 attendees, but quite a lot of people listen to the recordings when the live session time isn't convenient for them. We're using Dimdim as our conferencing system, so the setup for speakers is very simple: Just grab a headset, start a Flash-enabled browser on either Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, or Solaris, perform a 10-minute test with the MySQL University host, and you're ready for the live session. Everything is done through the browser, so you don't even need a telephone.

So it's very simple to be a speaker, but what should you talk about? Well, maybe you already have an interesting topic suggestion (or, even better, a set of slides you can reuse), but you can also have a look at topics suggested by attendees:

http://forge.mysql.com/wiki/MySQL_University#Proposed_Sessions

MySQL University sessions are open to anyone, not just Sun employees. Sessions are recorded (slides, audio, and desktop sharing), so if you can't attend the live session you can look at the recording anytime after the session.

Please suggest your session(s) to Stefan Hinz (stefan.hinz@sun.com), and let me know what date and time of the day would be best for you!

MySQL University: Concurrency Control: How It Really Works

This Thursday (September 24th, 14:00 UTC), Heikki Tuuri, the father of InnoDB, will give a session on Concurrency Control: How It Really Works. He'll describe how InnoDB manages concurrency control, so that the system protects data integrity. Beginning with the basics of transaction management, Heikki will include a discussion of the ACID (atomicity, consistency, isolation, and durability) properties, and explain various transaction modes, locking, deadlocks, and more advanced topics such as the impact of next-key (gap) locking, referential integrity, XA (distributed transaction management) support, and more. While the discussion will focus on the InnoDB implementation, many of the concepts presented apply to other database systems and storage engines.

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.
