Hacked!

Why didn’t I think of this? Tom Limoncelli was nice enough to create a livejournal feed for this site — http://www.livejournal.com/users/sheericom_feed/

The MySQL User Group meeting on Monday, there January 9th will focus on backups — I will give a 30-45 minute presentation on backups and we will then delve into a discussion — how folks within the group are backing up, how they’re not backing up, how they’d like to back up. If there’s time, we’ll do a “lessons learned from backup horror stories”.

Afterwards, we’ll head a few doors down to Boston Beer Works for more chatting.

You can see a video of last month’s presentation by Philip Antionades of MySQL AB on the new features in MySQL 5.0 at Google Video:

(we will video this month’s presentation but not the discussion)

More details, including the event location and directions, are at: http://mysql.meetup.com/137/events/

Any questions, comments, etc should be sent to me. We’re currently looking for a space better than North Station — something around MIT might be nice, and we’re trying to get an MIT grad student/faculty/staff member/organization to sponsor it. (We want a location that’s good for people driving AND taking the T, and when the Garden has an event, it’s not feasible to park there). If you can help out, please let me know.

(You may forward this announcement to other groups, lists, blogs, whatever.)

I’m quite excited about the presentation, as I’m writing down a lot of information from different sources that really wants to be together, but as far as I can tell is not yet, at least not in a public place.

This article is somewhat long. Interestingly, seek it does not actually cover my entire talk, prostate as there is much to talk about besides the mechanics of each backup option. I wonder what I’d need to do to make this into a white paper or an article?

The backup presentation was finished last night. I may decide to go back and put some extra stuff in there, but that would be syntax and code and stuff. The logic is all in there, and the notes have been printed. I will post the slides (in .pdf and .swf (flash, the file is very small that way) formats) after the talk on Monday, as I may yet revise them.

I am very excited about one slide in particular, and I’ll share it here. It’s really a slide that I end with, but I feel as though it’s a great starting point as well as a summary point. I haven’t seen this information encapsulated this way before, so here goes:
