This Week in Data with Colin Charles #6: Open Source Summit and Percona Live EuropeColin Charles
What a long, packed week! Spent most of it at Open Source Summit North America, while still enjoying the myriad phone calls and meetings you have as a Perconian. In addition to two talks, I also gave a webinar this week on the differences between MySQL and MariaDB (I’ll post a blog Q&A in the near future).
In addition, I think it’s definitely worth registering for the community dinner. You can hang out with other like-minded folks, and see the lightning talks (we may announce more as time gets closer).
See what the MySQL Team will speak about at Percona Live Dublin. You’ll notice that a few of the releases I mention below have Percona Live Europe talks associated with them.
- gh-ost 1.0.42 released: JSON support, optimizations – in addition to the release, the little hint that GitHub itself is powered by MySQL 5.7 in production is great news
- orchestrator 3.0.2 GA released: raft consensus, SQLite
- ProxySQL 1.4.2 now comes with experimental native clustering
- Percona Server for MongoDB 3.4.7-1.8, now with packages for Debian 9
- The List of Replication Defaults That Have Changed in 8.0.2
- Do you use Vitess? Do you know that it is planning to join the Cloud Native Computing Foundation? (of course, we’re covering this with two talks at Percona Live Europe Dublin – one by a user, Slack, and the other by the people behind Vitess, YouTube/Google).
- Optimizing web servers for high throughput and low latency – this is long, but so very relevant and filled with lots of granular detail
- A FAQ by Citus Data: Databases and Distributed Deadlocks
- Better Database Migrations in Postgres – also worth using the tool Strong Migrations.
On a somber note, former Perconian and all round great community member, Jaakko Pesonen passed away. Shlomi Noach commented online: Remembering Jaakko Pesonen.
