Speaking at Percona Live MySQL conference

Suitcase packed? Check!
Laptop? Check!
Presentation? 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. :D

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!

    • Unfortunately I did not make it to the talk. Me and my colleague had to make a choice between several talks which we both wanted to attend. He ended up going to the Box talk while I went to the Replaying database load with Percona Playback talk at the same time.
