Gearman and MySQL

Giuseppe Maxia is the MySQL Community Team Lead at Sun Microsystems. He's an active member of the MySQL community and a long timer open source enthusiast. During the past 22 years he has worked in various IT related fields, with focus on databases, object oriented programming and system administration. He's fluent in Italian, English, Perl, SQL, Lua, C, Bash, and good speaker of C++, French, Spanish and Java. He works in cyberspace, with a virtual team.


He'll be giving a presentation on Codebits on "Introduction to Gearman - a distributed, language and OS independent system for dynamic programming"


Abstract: Gearman is a client/server framework that makes task development easier and better suited for the job. Interaction between several operating systems and programming languages is friendly and easy. There are interfaces for the major languages, plugins and standalone applications, which allow you to define tasks and request jobs in a distributed environment. This talk will introduce Gearman architecture and basic concepts, and show how to solve some interesting problems in a creative way.


But it gets even better.


Suppose you're working on a project (perhaps even on Codebits) and, at some point, you decide to update your database schema. How are you going to reflect those changes on the live server? Will you drop and create the database again? What if there's multiple servers?


Well, Giuseppe has volunteered to give a second talk on these subjects and more: "Schema maintenance, migration, and synchronization in MySQL"


Abstract: Schema maintenance is a hot topic for database administrators. Especially if they have to maintain schemas for development, staging, and production, the task could be difficult and confusing. Using MySQL Workbench, schema maintenance is greatly simplified, and the tasks of synchronizing schemas across servers become easy and manageable.


We're looking forward to these talks.
