MySQL User Camp, Bangalore - 26th June, 2015

MySQL User Camp Bangalore, organized on 26th June, 2015, was a huge success with an excellent turnout of 49 attendees. We got many users from different companies, like Flipkart, Snapdeal, CTS, Capgemini, Yahoo, VMware, HCL, Datavail, Bosch, Rakuten and more.

The event started on time with a welcome speech by Balasubramanian Kandasamy, (Principal Member Technical Staff, MySQL Release Engineering). He welcomed all the attendees, followed by a brief agenda and introduction of the attendees.

Mahesh Patil (from Rakuten, a MySQL community member) presented on MySQL Tools Usage in Rakuten and Overview of Replication GTIDs. He provided a good summary on the MySQL Tools usage in Rakuten with snapshot of inbuilt tools and how the replication GTIDs are used.
