Percona Live London 2014 is starting next week and I'm happy to speak there about MySQL 5.7 Performance, Scalability & Benchmarks latest news. Indeed, MySQL 5.7 has a lot of positive changes and impressive improvements. And, looking on MySQL 5.7 Performance, there are many cases where the gap comparing to MySQL 5.6 today is simply amazing! ;-) -- but, of course, there are still some pending issues which are requiring yet more work to reach the expected speed-up.. So, I'll tell you all about the most hot stories around, while I'm also always curious about your issues you're hitting on your production systems. Please, don't hesitate to share them - this is helping us to make MySQL yet more better! ;-)

And I'm not saying this because I'm MySQL/Oracle employee ;-)) - just
expressing my personal feeling while flying back to Paris..
I really enjoyed this conference now much more than all previous years :
first of all having 5 days instead of 2 allows to have much more
networking than before (and usually it's the main goal for every
conference to create a lot of informal discussions and exchange on
then, the content - all excellent, no words.. there was so much new
stuff to discover and learn from other experiences, that I'm pretty
sure that each person at one moment during the conference should feel
a kind of "brain overflow" ;-) and what is good that there were talks
for any levels of skills -- so, it was very easy to progress on
understanding of each topic quickly and smoothly..
organization was just perfect : all in one place, no more running over
different floors/buildings, etc. ;-) having 30min breaks between talks
is really good as it allows to have an exchange related to presented
topics without impacting timing of the next talk / session (while we
could probably finish little bit later as well to have yet more
MySQL Customer Advisory Forum (CAF) - yet bigger and very well
organized as usually (while I'm not sure if all customers / users are
aware about this great possibility to discuss directly with MySQL
engineering, express all your wishes & issues, get the info from the
source about what is new, what is coming, what is planned, etc.) --
well, I know that many regretted on the last minute to have missed
subscription, so keep in mind this for the next year ;-))
- MySQL Reception - really good! specially that doors were open to anyone, including persons who are not attending the conference -- a true MySQL Community event!
Few wishes anyway for the next year :
would be great to have MySQL posters around the place where conference
is going ;-)
- would be great to have a kind of "closing conference" keynote(s), etc. to make a summary, to thank all attendees & organizers, to have some fun instead just see doors closing and people leaving..
But well, all-in-all - simply great MySQL Conference, which may become only better over a time! so, book your agenda ahead for the next year -- pretty sure it'll be yet more fun ;-)
As promised, here are my presentation slides from my talks on MySQL Central @OpenWord 2014 :
Feel free to ping me if you have any questions, while I'll also try to
cover some of explained topics within the next blog posts, so stay tuned

Oracle OpenWorld 2014 is starting today, and MySQL Central Conference since this year is taking a full part of it. I'm very happy to be there and have 2 talks :
- MySQL 5.7 : Performance and Scalability Benchmarks | Wed, 1/Oct. | 2:00 PM - 2:45 PM | Moscone South - 252 | CON5066
- MySQL Performance : Demystified Tuning and Best Practices | Thu, 2/Oct. | 10:45 AM - 11:30 AM | Moscone South - 252 | CON5097
so I'll be able to say more this time and mostly focus on the Benchmarks results & analyzes on the first talk, and then mainly focus on the tuning and the latest MySQL 5.7 design improvements to allow you to reach yet more higher & stable performance levels.
I have several "fun" stories to tell you around the latest findings around MySQL 5.7 Performance we made, and problems we've solved (or newly found ;-)) Don't know if I'll have a time to blog about all of this one day.. - while telling you these stories live during the conference is much more easier, so hope to keep you awake and have fun ;-) Indeed, there is no doubt, MySQL 5.7 rocks and it will be the next the best MySQL release ever.. - and I'll tell you why ;-)
Then, once again, I'm regretting I cannot clone myself to attend all the conference talks in parallel.. - there are so many valuable presentations in the program that it's really hard to decide where to go.. I may only advice you to attend all of them (you and your clones ;-)) -- this excellent Agenda Summary is telling all..
And don't miss the MySQL Community Reception @OOW 30/Sep. 7PM-9PM (you need just to register yourself via this link to help organizers with logistics ;-))
see you there!
