THe MySQL APT Repository provides an easy and convenient way to get the latest MySQL software. My test server was need of a refresh so I put on a fresh install of Ubuntu 14.04 and downloaded
sudo dpkg -i mysql-apt-config_0.2.1-1ubuntu14.04_all.deb
[sudo] password for dstokes:
Selecting previously unselected package mysql-apt-config.
You will get a choice to install MySQL 5.6 or the latest 5.7 DMR.
sudo apt-get update Pulls the latest information from the repository for the various packages.
sudo apt-get install mysql-server Installs the server and will start it running. And then a quick
sudo apt-get install mysql-workbench to get me where i needed to be.
There is a detailed information at A Quick Guide to Using the MySQL APT Repository
The North Texas MySQL Uxer Group will meet July 14th in the Oracle office in Irving at 6PM.

MySQL is proud to be a Diamond Sponsor of the Southeast Linxufest June 20-22nd in Charlotte. There is a Zero to DBA track again this year. Be sure to check out the program. I will be speaking on MySQL 5.7, Query Tuning, and Big Data. Drop by the booth for BoogieBots, heavy duty luggage tags, and to talk MySQL.
MySQL was proud to return as a sponsor of the Texas Linuxfest last weekend. Over 700 tickets sold and I probably talked to all bu two or three. Luckily I had help from Quality Assurance Guru Jeb Miller and Software Release Manager Hema Sridharan as things got very busy. The crowd was really supportive of us, MySQL, and extremely friendly.
MySQL Fabric was a popular topic of discussion. Evidently playing ‘who has the virtual IP address’ is a big problem for DevOps staffs and Fabric solves that issue. Many in attendance were on the verge of needing to shard their data and liked having a tool to manage the work for them.
And Workbench 6.1 is extremely popular. Me, “Have you seen the latest MySQL Workbench in action?” Attendee, “Yes, I use it all the time and ti has really become awesome in the last year!” Many non-DBAs who have to look after MySQL instances love the admin tools over fat finger on the command line.
So next June plan to be in Austin to see the bats come out at midnight, hear some great music on 6th Street, eat yourself silly on South Congress, and attend the best Open Source event in the Lone Star State.
MySQL Fabric – High Availability & Automated Sharding for MySQL
MySQL Fabric is built around an extensible and open source framework for managing farms of MySQL Servers. Currently two features have been implemented – High Availability (built on top of MySQL Replication) and scaling out using data sharding. These features can be used in isolation or in combination. MySQL Fabric aware connectors allow transactions and queries to be routed to the correct servers without the need for a proxy node, so operations run as quickly as ever. In this webinar you will learn what MySQL Fabric is, what it can achieve and how it is used – by DBAs, Dev-Ops and developers. You’ll also be exposed to what is happening under the covers. In addition to the presentation, there will be live on-line Q&A with the engineering team. This is a great opportunity to learn about the latest developments directly from the people building them.

Good MySQL talent is hard to find. Each day I get several ‘I am looking for a MySQL DBA’ or ‘MySQL Developer needed’. Long story short, post your opening on http://forums.mysql.com as it catches the most eyes of MySQL Professionals.
