On the road again - FOSSAsia

It has been a few busy months until now. I have moved from Italy to Thailand, and the move has been my first priority, keeping me from attending FOSDEM and interacting with social media.

Quick and dirty concurrent operations from the shell

Let’s say that you want to measure something in your database, and for that you need several operations to happen in parallel.

Call for papers (with lightning talks): Percona Live MySQL Conference 2014

The call for participation for Percona Live MySQL Conference 2014 is still open. As part of the review committee, I will be looking at the proposals, and I hope to see many interesting ones.

Tungsten Replicator Filters: A trove of golden secrets unveiled

Since I joined the company in late 2010, I have known that one of the strong points of Tungsten Replicator is its ability of setting filters. The amazing capabilities offered by Tungsten filters cannot be fully grasped unless we explain how stage replication works.

Speaking at the MySQL NoSQL & Cloud Conference & Expo in Buenos Aires

I am on my way to Argentina, where I will be speaking at the MySQL NoSQL & Cloud Conference & Expo.

I have two talks: one on my pet project MySQL Sandbox and one on replication between MySQL and MongoDB (using another project dear to me, Tungsten Replicator.
