After a bit of phone tag with Nat, I got two 45 minute Friday spots to speak at OSCON about MySQL. I just need to figure out what to talk about. I'm leaning towards two new talks.
- MySQL Scaling Pains
- Query Benchmarking for MySQL
Both are new talks that I haven't done before. What do ya think? Interesting? Boring? Other ideas? I have a day or so to get them my title, abstract, etc.
I just didn't feel like recycling one of my older talks. Besides, I'll be needing to do those both for my new job anyway. :-)
(Oh, I should probably say more about that too, at some point.)
Anyway, go register soon.

"Scaling pains" would be fun.
Scaling and benchmarking both sound good. :-) Full-text related stuff would also be cool.
Always looking for more good MySQL stuff from you. :-D Good luck.
Scaling would be cool. I'd like to see more of MySQL handling multiple servers (farms) and large data management (terabytes).
Wow, this is a first. OSCON sessions that I both want to go to and I can go to! Nat's normally perverse sense of conference scheduling always manages to put the talks I want opposite the talks I'm giving...
Scaling would be nice, but I would be really interested in hearing something about query benchmarking. That would be pretty useful.
Excellent. I was hoping I'd be able to catch at least one or two sessions from you. I think both topics will be enlightening. Is this a case of groupthink? Everyone seems to agree.
I vote for scaling.
I need to create an index on a field (int(10))
on a table which has over 450 million records. From your experience, how long
it will take to create such index in MySQL 3.23?
