Presenting on MySQL Cluster at Collaborate 11

For those not familiar with Collaborate, it’s the big community conference for Oracle users – this year it’s in Orlando from April 10th through 14th (I’ve just checked the weather forecast, 29 Celsius vs. -18 at the last conference I presented at – OOW Beijing in December – what a difference 4 months and 8,000 miles make!).

I’ll be presenting on MySQL Cluster in a session called “Building Highly Available Scalable Real-Time Services with MySQL Cluster” where I’ll focus on:

  • Basics of MySQL Cluster – what it does, who uses it and why
  • Accessing your data – SQL and NoSQL access methods
  • Latest features
  • What’s coming in the future.

My session starts at 8:00 am on Tuesday 12th April (sorry for the early start).

For people interested in MySQL Cluster, another session you should try to attend is “MySQL Cluster for the Enterprise” presented by Craig Russell at 2:15 pm on Wednesday 13th April.

Other MySQL HA topics from the Oracle team:

To get an overall picture of what is happening to MySQL in Oracle, you should attend Tomas Ulin’s (VP of MySQL Engineering) “The State of MySQL” session at 9:15 am on Monday 11th April.

You can see a full list of sessions in the MySQL track here.

And last but not least, come and visit us at the MySQL booths in the Oracle Demo Grounds (I’ll update this post when I know exactly where we’ll be) to chat with us and/or get a demo.
