In case you live under a rock, the MySQL conference starts on Tuesday. There are 8 concurrent tracks of content. Aside from my own talks, here are the sessions I would most like to see.
- Tutorial: Innodb and XtraDB Architecture and Performance Optimization. Peter’s talks are always great, and this is a perennial favorite. If you have never been, you should go to this one. You will realize how little you really know about InnoDB/XtraDB, and how much it matters.
- Tutorial: Linux and H/W optimizations for MySQL. Last year I tweeted that Yoshinori’s tutorial was the 3rd edition of High Performance MySQL, and I really wasn’t exaggerating that much.
- BoF session: Percona XtraDB Cluster. I believe that this is one of the few truly groundbreaking changes to MySQL – right up there with “MySQL has transactions now” and “MySQL adds replication.”
