The months of May and June are very active in the MySQL Community. MySQL was a sponsor and had a booth at the always lively Linuxfest Northwest. 2,500 people can’t be wrong and I had several hundred great personal talks with attendees about MySQL and databases.
Thursday night the 18th I have a short talk on Nomad PHP on MySQL & JSON. This is an online PHP User Group and attracts some of the best in the PHP world (not sure how I got in there).
The always awesome PHPTek moves to Atlanta and I will present a three hour workshop on MySQL Replication 101 — Bring a laptop with Docker loaded and we will go from setting up basic master/slave replication to building a three node Group Replication cluster. This is the show on the PHP conference circuit that even log time PHP developers walk away with a skull full of new knowledge and a stack of new things to try.
Then to Charlotte to Southeast Linuxfest for three presentations. This is a fun event with a warm, friendly audience. There is a Zero to DBA track which is part of Oracle’s Diamond Sponsorship of the show. I will talk on MySQL 8, JSON Data and MySQL, and A Brief History of the Weird Side of Computing. This event has a wild set of evening activities for those who choose to partake.
Then it is off to Scotland to the UK Oracle User Group where I will be speaking on JSON and MySQL Best Practices.
