MariaDB Developer’s unconference & M|18

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 02:07:37 +0000

Been a while since I wrote anything MySQL/MariaDB related here, but there’s the column on the Percona blog, that has weekly updates. Anyway, I’ll be at the developer’s unconference this weekend in NYC. Even managed to snag a session on the schedule, MySQL features missing in MariaDB Server (Sunday, 12.15–13.00). Signup on meetup? Due to […]

Roaming data, revisited

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 07:52:03 +0000

I’m reminded about roaming data as we’re now in 2018. For me, in the last few years, it has already become common to turn on roaming data at the RM36/day rate for unlimited Internet access. I of course plan/optimise this (since it follows a midnight-midnight regime). I tend not to have roaming data turned on […]

It’s never really about the product

Sun, 07 Jan 2018 10:41:42 +0000

From an excellent Medium post: The 3 Most Important Things I Know About Consumers I Learned From Bartending: It’s never really about the product – people drink to feel (or to stop feeling) something. True again about buying clothes. “Understanding these needs goes a long way. You almost never want to speak or market directly […]

Reading more, writing more

Sun, 07 Jan 2018 10:12:45 +0000

People around me say I’m well read, or consume a lot of reading materials. That may be true, but lately I feel like I’m in a bit of a constant cycle of going through my subscriptions, and reading shorter form stuff, with a lot more context switching than I expected. So it was kind of […]

Premier Open Source Database Conference Call for Papers closing January 12 2018

Tue, 02 Jan 2018 10:21:07 +0000

The call for papers for Percona Live Santa Clara 2018 was extended till January 12 2018. This means you still have time to get a submission in. Topics of interest: MySQL, MongoDB, PostgreSQL & other open source databases. Don’t forget all the upcoming databases too (there’s a long list at db-engines). I think to be […]

Linda Papadopoulos on the James Altucher show

Mon, 01 Jan 2018 09:12:07 +0000

I don’t listen to every episode of the James Altucher podcast (to be fair, I don’t listen to every episode of any podcast; I skip liberally, preferring to spend quality time with audiobooks from

Movie for our times: Tulip Fever

Mon, 01 Jan 2018 04:09:24 +0000

I was flying and managed to catch Tulip Fever. Interesting show, considering I have had many conversations recently where people had no idea what the Tulip Mania was all about. It’s a good “plane movie”, and maybe gives you some insight into what occurred then, but it didn’t open to great reviews (e.g. NYT). It […]

Annus Horribilis, 2017

Sun, 31 Dec 2017 10:17:56 +0000

I’ve been writing New Year’s Notes for quite sometime, and in 2017 I ushered it in Lisbon. The year didn’t start particularly well, considering there was illness that befell (on Jan 1, with a doctor’s visit to the suite!). Not for me, I was still hale and hearty, but there was also a situation a […]

December 2017 Crypto Tab Sweep

Wed, 27 Dec 2017 13:37:58 +0000

Cryptocurrencies? Blockchains? I’m sure you’ve heard of them before by now, unless you’re living under a rock. I’m an open source & database guy, so for me, I look at all this with a fine toothed comb. Probably doesn’t help that I enjoy reading the FT on a daily basis. Anyway, a selection of links… […]

Percona Live Santa Clara 2018 CFP

Mon, 18 Dec 2017 08:29:19 +0000

Percona Live Santa Clara 2018 call for papers ends fairly soon — December 22 2017. It may be extended, but I suggest getting a topic in ASAP so the conference committee can view everything fairly and quickly. Remember this conference is bigger than just MySQL, so please submit topics on MongoDB, other databases like PostgreSQL, […]
