Sessions now scheduled for MySQL Connect

MySQL Connect 2013 - I'm speaking logoThe sessions for this year’s MySQL Connect conference have now been scheduled – as you can see below, my 2 MySQL Cluster sessions will be on Saturday 21st September at 11:30 and 14:30 (Pacific).

The MySQL Connect conference is a great opportunity to listen to and chat with people from the MySQL community – including the engineers who work on or around MySQL as well people who are using it in production. The conference takes place from 21-23 September in San Francisco (runs up to Oracle OpenWorld). There are 84 sessions scheduled and the content catalog has now been published.

I’ll be presenting 2 sessions:

  • What’s New in MySQL Cluster 7.3 [CON2477] (Saturday 11:30 Hilton – Imperial Ballroom B). In this session, discover the latest developments and how MySQL Cluster 7.3 enables developers to focus on building robust, scalable applications faster. Get your database up and running in minutes by using the browser-based autoinstaller, combining autodiscovery with best practices to deliver the ideal configuration the first time. Migrate existing applications and frameworks to MySQL Cluster, and simplify new ones by exploiting cross-shard foreign keys. Access your data directly with the native driver for JavaScript/Node.js. At the same time, enjoy the benefits of 99.999 percent uptime and a distributed, autosharded database that scales to deliver higher loads than ever whether with SQL or NoSQL APIs—even when you’re working with queries and updates that span shards.
  • Deploy and Scale MySQL Cluster Like a Pro Without Opening the Manual [CON3763] (Saturday 14:30 Hilton – Union Square Room 5/6). This session aims to tackle a few myths head-on: “Installing a distributed database has to be complex,” “Only NoSQL data stores make life easy for developers,” “Years of painful experience and a PhD are needed to configure a distributed, real-time database.” In this session, see for yourself how to configure and deploy MySQL Cluster over several hosts in just minutes—right from your browser. Observe how the MySQL Cluster Installer applies best practices to produce a tailored configuration, using your hints about your application together with autodiscovery of the system resources. Also see how MySQL Cluster Manager simplifies the management of your cluster, performing sophisticated operations such as adding new nodes or performing online upgrades with ease.
