If you want to improve your MySQL skills and happen to be in the UK or Germany in June and July, there are two conferences coming up that you'll want to know about. Both cover some excellent ways to improve MySQL's performance.
The first one is a half-day seminar to be held June 10 at St. John's Innovation Centre in Cambridge. Hosted by Oracle and titled “Scalability and High Availability with MySQL,” this live event will explain the enhanced features introduced in MySQL 5.5, focusing on performance improvements. It also looks to the future, telling attendees what to expect from the upcoming MySQL 5.6 release.
After discussing features, the seminar will cover reference architectures for websites in a variety of sizes. Security and management issues, such as authentication, e-commerce, and content management, will also be discussed. Attendees will learn about client/server architectures, MySQL replication, and much more. If you're at all concerned about the scalability of your website, you'll want to attend this seminar. You can learn more about it and register here.
Are you looking for a slightly longer seminar on MySQL? Oracle is also offering one that goes from 9 AM to 2 PM. Titled “Scalability and High Availability with MySQL,” this live event will take place in London, UK on June 29; the same event will be held in Dusseldorf, Germany, on July 13. If you're a telecom customer of Oracle, you should consider attending, as the agenda specifically includes an hour-long post-lunch session specifically for telecom customers.
This free Oracle seminar focuses on various options and technologies you can use to implement highly available and highly scalable MySQL infrastructures. Attendees will also learn about best practices as applied to architectures. This is vital information for anyone running web-based and/or business critical applications that must be available all of the time.
The seminar will cover the new high availability features in MySQL 5.5, MySQL Replication, and much more. Attendees will also learn about the upcoming Oracle VM Template for MySQL Enterprise Edition, and what’s new and exciting in the development releases MySQL 5.6 and MySQL Cluster 7.2.
