Well, the deadline for talk submissions at the annual O'Reilly Open Source Convention just passed (I hadn't noticed--I blame being busy). It's in Portland again this year, in late July. The folks at O'Reilly have asked me for talk ideas, so I figured I'd pose the question to anyone reading this who might have an opinion on the matter. If you were going to be at OSCON this year, what MySQL talks would you most like to see? What topics are most interesting or in need of more coverage?
- Replication, Load-Balancing, Clustering, and High-Availability
- Benchmarking and Stress Testing
- Backup and Recovery
- Application Design
- Performance Tuning
- New Features
- Examples of What Not To Do (real world horror stories)
- Why Comparing PostgreSQL and MySQL is Pointless
The talk lengths are 45 or 90 minutes, while tutorials are either 3 or 6 hours. Feel free to spew any ideas you might have here or mail me.
See you in Orlando?
On a related note, I am speaking at the 2nd annual MySQL User Conference in April. It's in Orlando this year. I already have the rough idea for my talk figured out. The working topic is n Years of MySQL at Yahoo!, where "n" is a value close to 3. I'll post more details later. In the meantime, get yourself registered!
