Thank you very much if you attended my session at the Percona Live MySQL Conference!
I promised some people to share my slides, so I posted them on the page at Percona:
Spil Games: Outgrowing an internet startup (Percona Live MySQL Conference 2012) on SlideShare

My opinion of the conference is that it was amazing! The conference was very well organized, the atmosphere was great and I met so many great people that I had a tough time remembering all their names and companies. The contents of all talks were really well balanced and most of the ones I attended were very interesting.
The most interesting talk of the conference was the Scripting MySQL with Lua and libdrizzle inside Nginx. It was a shame only a few people attended the talk and that they ran out of time before they could complete the presentation.
Apart from that I had a really great time and hope to see you all next year! (or later this year in London)
Suitcase packed? Check!
I’m ready for my departure to San Francisco tomorrow morning!
I already mentioned before that I will be a speaker at the MySQL conference, but I think the session has moved since. It is now scheduled Thursday between 1:00 and 1:50 in ballrooom E. Be there if you want to know more about what Spil Games is doing!
I also determined what the most interesting talks are going to be for me and here are some of the highlights:
One to Many: The Story of Sharding at Box (Wed 1:00 – 1:50pm)
Sounds very interesting to see how different their story is from the one at Spil Games.
The Etsy Shard Architecture: Starts with S and Ends With Hard (Wed 2:00 – 2:50)
Same as above but then with the difference that, from the description, it seems they are implementing almost the same solution as we are.
Scripting MySQL with Lua and libdrizzle inside Nginx (Wed 3:30 – 16:20)
Very interesting thought of combining Nginx with Lua and a database connection through Libdrizzle. It seems you can easily implement lightweight services this way. So definitely a reccomended session!
Percona XtraDB Cluster: New HA solution (Thu 11:00 – 11:50)
Percona XtraDB Cluster came to me as a complete surprise earlier this year. I’ve been playing around with it a little bit and now that it has gone GA last week I’m even more anxious to attend this session. I think it could be a good candidate to become one of the building blocks for Spil Games in the future.
Common Schema: a framework for MySQL server administration (Thu 2:00 – 2:50)
I haven’t done much with Common Schema so far and it is already available on our platform so I think it would be a good idea to attend this session and get more practical insights.
So I’m off to SF in about 19 hours. If you are also attending the conference: see you there!
