Dinesh Joshi - Apache Cassandra

It's 2019 and there are so many choices for storing your data. There are old players on the market and there are some new kids on the block. Making the wrong choice for your database can effectively sink your product, project and even your reputation! Should you go with SQL or NoSQL or Document database or something in between? What about polyglot persistence? Reactive, event-driven, non-blocking, async applications? What about the language bindings? What about support? Performance, Tuning, Tooling, Monitoring, Observability, Upgrades, Rollbacks, Migrations, Search & Indexing, Analytics, Availability, Durability, ACID or BASE? Building, running & maintaining storage infrastructure is non-trivial. We will look at the state of databases in 2019 and try to answer some of these questions.

John Scott - Mailchimp

Mailchimp has grown from small company to serving millions of micro-businesses, in addition to SMBs and Enterprises. We have a fairly pedestrian approach to MySQL, but we now run hundreds and perhaps soon to be thousands of MySQL instances. Our present state is thanks to great full-stack engineering teamwork. This is a glimpse into what makes Mailchimp tick. Hint, it's not just technology. This talk is about "Momentum" and "Pragmatism", and creating a great outcome for our mission of empowering the underdog.

Ivan Groenewold - Pythian, Gabriel Ciciliani - Pythian

As consultants, we are often asked to perform a one-off assessment of existing environments. These requests involve basically three phases: data collection, analysis and results presentation. In order to reduce the time spent on low-value tasks, we introduced automation to turn collected data into a deliverable and to assist consultants with the analysis and recommendations.

In this session we are going to share the process details, technologies involved and the benefits introduced to our organization

Audience Takeaways/Take Back to Work:

- Discover a way to construct / manipulate dynamic documents
- Learn about the benefits of introducing automation into documentation processes
- Hear a few lessons learned during the development of the solution

Derek Downey - Pythian

Technology is ever evolving. New open source databases pop up and fade away.

Even the role of a database administrator changes as DBaaS adoption becomes status quo.

The burden of maintaining your skills and knowledge is on you.

Charles Duhigg, the author of The Power of Habit, writes "If you believe you can change - if you make it a habit - the change becomes real."

Through anecdotes of how a global managed services provider like Pythian enables learning for its employees, this session will provide strategies to make learning a habit.

These strategies will help you thrive in your career, whether you are an individual contributor, or a leader hoping to enable learning for your team.

Jervin Real - Percona

Would you like MySQL Protocol Compatibility and near real time dashboard analytics with that?

We are hoarding data in the hopes of making meaningful information out of them to make smart business decisions. But we also resort to inflating costs just to satisfy this need (or not). While there have been a number of open source roll your own options, it has been also operationally costly and sometimes stressful to maintain, not to mention the shortcomings of each. If you have been traditionally storing your data with MySQL and have been enduring running your queries from the same set of servers, fret no more - Clickhouse might just be what you need. In this presentation, we will discuss how to deploy, design, and maintain a Clickhouse analytics platform that continuously reads data from your MySQL servers in near real-time*.

* Depends if you have transformations or complex schema.
