Debian and MariaDB Server

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 08:13:44 +0000

GNU/Linux distributions matter, and Debian is one of the most popular ones out there in terms of user base. Its an interesting time as MariaDB Server becomes more divergent compared to upstream MySQL, and people go about choosing default providers of the database. The MariaDB Server original goals were to be a drop-in replacement. In […]

Cleaning up the Mac, backup edition

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 07:11:22 +0000

A while back, I realised that was getting too large and it was easy to purge it. I had to do this again. The app I use to see where my space is going is OmniDiskSweeper. Its free, and I highly recommend it. I use Arq to handle backups (in addition to Backblaze, and […]

CfP for Percona Live Santa Clara closes November 13!

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 16:49:24 +0000

At Percona Live Amsterdam recently, the conference expanded beyond just its focus areas of MySQL & its ecosystem and MongoDB to also include PostgreSQL and other open source databases (just look at the recent poll). The event was a sold out success. This will continue for Percona Live Santa Clara 2017, happening April 24-27 2017 […]

Region restrictions in a globalised world

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 08:57:52 +0000

I think we can all agree that globalisation has won, and we live in a flat world. However when it comes to consuming media, we still live in a world of regional restrictions. Rights are not issued globally, and rights owners see this as milking every last penny by ensuring that regional restrictions apply. This […]

Speaking in October 2016

Sun, 02 Oct 2016 10:05:05 +0000

I’m thrilled to naturally be at Percona Live Europe Amsterdam from Oct 3-5 2016. I have previously talked about some of my sessions but I think there’s another one on the schedule already. LinuxCon Europe – Oct 4-6 2016. I won’t be there for the whole conference, but hope to make the most of my […]

Percona Live Europe Amsterdam PostgreSQL Day

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 17:11:41 +0000

This is my very first post on Planet PostgreSQL, so thank you for having me here! I’m not sure if you’re aware, but the PostgreSQL Events page lists the conference as something that should be of interest to PostgreSQL users and developers. There is a PostgreSQL Day on October 4 2016 in Amsterdam, and if […]

Speaking in September 2016

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 03:44:40 +0000

A few events, but mostly circling around London: Open collaboration – an O’Reilly Online Conference, at 10am PT, Tuesday September 13 2016 – I’m going to be giving a new talk titled Forking Successfully. I’ve seen how the platform works, and I’m looking forward to trying this method out (its like a webminar but not […]

Speaking in August 2016

Fri, 19 Aug 2016 16:54:33 +0000

I know this is a tad late, but there have been some changes, etc. recently, so apologies for the delay of this post. I still hope to meet many of you to chat about MySQL/Percona Server/MariaDB Server, MongoDB, open source databases, and open source in general in the remainder of August 2016. LinuxCon+ContainerCon North America […]

What’s next

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 03:47:41 +0000

I received an overwhelming number of comments when I said I was leaving MariaDB Corporation. Thank you – it is really nice to be appreciated. I haven’t left the MySQL ecosystem. In fact, I’ve joined Percona as their Chief Evangelist in the CTO Office, and I’m going to focus on the MySQL/Percona Server/MariaDB Server ecosystem, […]
