Real Time Data Warehousing Presentation

At the March Boston MySQL User Group meeting, Jacob Nikom of MIT's Lincoln Laboratory presented "Optimizing Concurrent Storage and Retrieval Operations for Real-Time Surveillance Applications." In the middle of the talk, Jacob said he sometimes calls what he did in this application as "real-time data warehousing", which was so accurate I decided to give that title to this blog post.

The slides can be downloaded in PDF format (1.3 Mb) at http://www.technocation.org/files/doc/Concurrent_database_performance_02.pdf.

Replication Presentation at the November 2007 Boston MySQL User Group

Patrick Galbraith, former MySQL employee who helped write replication, came to the November 2007 Boston MySQL User Group and did a fantastic presentation on replication, including showing how to set up replication and walking us through the steps in real-time, setting up an example server.

MySQL Proxy Presentation at the September 2007 Boston MySQL User Group

I have finally managed to watch and slightly edit the September 2007 Boston MySQL User Group presentation I did on the MySQL Proxy.

It's geared towards beginners, and has lots of examples, including explaining some of the examples that come bundled with the MySQL Proxy.

Video on YouTube.

Enjoy!

Backups Video Presentation From Jan 2006 Boston MySQL User Group

The Boston MySQL User Group was successful yet again! I was a bit worried about my presentation, that it would be too basic or folks would have wanted to see actual code and scripts, but it turned out well. Special thanx to Mike Kruckenberg for taking the video and taking pictures! Folks who were at the presentation ā€” feel free to let me know what you thought of it. Folks not at the presentation ā€” feel free to watch the video and let me know what you think. Iā€™m especially interested for those folks who read the last article, if the talk goes more in depth and answers more questions.
