I’m pleased to announce that Oracle is sending some of their top technical people to speak at the

There is one more day until the 2013 Virtual Developer Day for North America so register today! Europe, Middle East, Africa and Some Asian Countries have a week before their event!
Virtual Developer Day: MySQL is a one-stop shop for you to learn all the essential MySQL skills. With a combination of presentations and hands-on lab experience, you’ll learn the latest features in MySQL 5.6, have the opportunity to practice in your own environment and sharpen your skills to:
In my job, I do a lot of testing. And no matter how much organized we try to be, we end up with fewer machines than we would need to run all the tests that we want.
For some tasks, we can run MySQL Sandbox, and get the job done. But sometimes we need to make sure that applications and systems work well across the network, and we need to install and run systems on separate servers.

On Thursday, I will travel to Boston, MA, to attend the Northeast LinuxFest, which includes also an edition of the Open Database Camp. The events will be at one of my favorite places on earth: The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a.k.a. the MIT. Every time I speak at an event there, I feel at home, and I look forward to be there once more.
Last time I wrote about memory allocators and how they can affect MySQL performance in general. This time I would like to explore this topic from a bit different angle: What impact does the number of processor cores have on different memory allocators and what difference we will see in MySQL performance in this scenario?
Here is a collection of upcoming events that are interesting to me as a MySQL user (in some cases because I’m speaking). I think some of them are must-see events. I am sure I am missing a lot of events, but some of these are only publicized in specific channels, and I wanted to mention them here to help spread the word.
