Conferences

Call for presentations for Collaborate 2011 is open!

Collaborate 2011 is a database operational conference to be held in Orlando, Florida April 10th - 14th 2011. Unfortunately, the O'Reilly MySQL Conference has been scheduled for the same week; however, I am working with the conference committee to make sure that speakers that want to attend both are scheduled appropriately (I intend on going to both!). The call for presentations is now open through the end of September, so you have just over a month to submit your proposals. Experience has shown that the best presentations are submitted well in advance of the deadline -- I guess when folks are time-crunched by the deadline they do not make such great abstracts....Speakers whose presentations are accepted receive free admission to the conference and a speaker thank-you gift.

OpenSQLCamp Boston planning, and seeking sponsors

Firstly, if you have not yet seen the Session Schedule for OpenSQLCamp 2010 Germany, take a look -- great work Lenz! I am sad that I will be missing it on Aug 21-22nd.

However, this post is mostly about OpenSQLCamp Boston, which I am planning. I am working on a good hotel room rate -- hotel rooms in the Boston area are pricey, and I'm trying to work out something at $159 per night or lower. I will let you know if that happens, otherwise we will probably be on our own for hotel rooms.

Chasing Bottlenecks
by Morgan Tocker

Description:
The best way to performance tune a system is to find out what your bottlenecks are, and attacking those first. In the first part of this session, I'll be looking at some of the issues faced with common database workloads. From there, I'll then be showing how you can get more information out of MySQL and your Operating System to find out about your workload. This session is designed for beginner to intermediate MySQL users.
