Dear Kettle & MySQL fans!
I’m really looking forward to go to the MySQL User Conference next week, not just because I’m speaking in 2 sessions again, but perhaps also because these are “interesting” times for MySQL and Sun Microsystems. Pivotal times it would seem.
Here are the 2 sessions I’m going to do:
- Cloud Computing with MySQL and Kettle : I’m particularly happy that MySQL accepted this session: it will demonstrate how easy it has become to do cloud computing exercises with tools like MySQL and Kettle.
- Starring Sakila: Data Warehousing Explained, Illustrated, and Subtitled : it will be a lot of fun to co-present this with MySQL veteran Roland Bouman. Despite brutally busy times on both ends we’ve become good friends and with a little bit of luck we’ll be flying together to SFO from AMS (Schiphol) with KLM.
So please drop in on our sessions and join the fun. 2 years ago my sessions drew quite a crowd and so I hope that this is again the case. Pentaho is a sponsor of the event and even has a booth (#308) on the main show floor. You can find me there to chat on Tuesday & Wednesday afternoon (1pm-4:30pm). I’ll be there together with a group of people from Pentaho including Julian Hyde, James Dixon, Lars Nordwal, Lance Walter, Matt Papertsian & Jared Cornelius.
On Thursday I’ll be visiting the sages from SQLStream in the morning to talk about integrating their technology to create truly real-time data integration solutions without the need to fork over insane amounts of money. Later that day we’ll all go see John Sichi‘s session at the nearby (same building) Percona Performance Conference.
See you soon!
