The UK Oracle User Group Conference runs from 29th November through 1st December 2010 – the MySQL content is on Wednesday 1st at the ICC in Birmingham. This is a great chance for MySQL users to find out more on the latest developments and question some of the experts (both from inside and outside Oracle) and for Oracle users who don’t have experience with MySQL to discover what it’s all about.
The day starts with a keynote from Rich Mason (VP responsible for MySQL sales) at 8:45; I’ll be part of a MySQL panel at 9:50 and then Mat Keep and I will be presenting on MySQL Cluster at 14:15. In the Cluster session we’ll will introduce MySQL Cluster and cover the most important features of MySQL Cluster 7.1: ndbinfo; MySQL Cluster Connector/Java and other features that push the limits of MySQL Cluster into new workloads and communities.
ndbinfo presents real-time usage statistics from the MySQL Cluster data nodes as a series of SQL tables, enabling developers and administrators to monitor database performance and optimize their applications.
Designed for Java developers, the MySQL Cluster Connector for Java implements an easy-to-use and high performance native Java interface and OpenJPA plug-in that maps Java classes to tables stored in the MySQL Cluster database.
Finally, we’ll present some real-world case studies and explain some of the new capabilities that are currently in development.
Another session that’s likely to be suited to people interested in MySQL Cluster is a more general presentation on delivering High Availability with MySQL – presented by Mario Beck.
As you’d expect there are many more MySQL sessions to choose from – check the full schedule.
Hope to see as many of you there as possible!
