Two years ago we rebooted MySQL from being a monolithic architecture to a modular database kernel. Now that Drizzle is starting to stabilize and more folks are using it, it is no longer just a developer project. This session focuses on what everyday DBAs and developers need to know to take advantage of all of the features Drizzle has to offer.

In this tutorial, the core server and common modules available will be described and put to use. A list of things to watch out for while porting applications will be described, while showing how to leverage new features of Drizzle for both old and new applications.

A variety of supported language APIs will be introduced, but examples will primarily be in Python, PHP, and C.

Brian has spent his life working on the details of how to build and scale out systems. He is currently working on a new MicroKernel designed MySQL called Drizzle and is building the plumbing required for a new generation of large scale computer deployment. He also spends time working on Apache Modules, Memcached, and Gearman.

Unlike most engineers you will never find him in a cubicle, he spends much of his time traveling around the planet enjoying the diversity that is our world. In the past, he has been involved with projects for the Army Engineer Corps, The VirtualHospital, Splunk, MySQL, and Slashdot. He calls Seattle his home since that is where his dog Rosalynd is.

Percona

Stewart Smith joined Percona in 2011 as Director of Server Development with a deep background in database internals including MySQL, MySQL Cluster, Drizzle, InnoDB and HailDB.

Prior to joining Percona, Stewart worked at Rackspace on the Drizzle database server focusing on getting it through a critical milestone of a stable Generally Available (GA) release. Prior to Rackspace, he worked on Drizzle as a member of the CTO Labs group inside Sun Microsystems.

As one of the founding core developers of the Drizzle database server Stewart has deep expertise in the code base. He had direct involvement in significant refactoring of the database server including removing the FRM, the InnoDB storage engine, xtrabackup, the storage engine API, CATALOG support and countless bug fixes. He also maintains HailDB, a shared library offering a NoSQL C API directly to InnoDB.

At Sun Microsystems, and MySQL before that, Stewart was a Senior Software Engineer in the MySQL Cluster team working on core code and features inside the MySQL Server and the Cluster codebase working on projects such as: geographical asynchronous replication, online add node, online backup, NDBINFO for improved monitoring and the Win32 port.

He’s been found speaking at MySQL User Conferences, linux.conf.au, OSCON, OSDC, SAGE-AU and more.
