Speaking at Percona MySQL Conference and Sphinx Search Day

I’m happy to see that the vacuum created by O’Reilly Media dropping the annual MySQL Conference has been filled by the good people at Percona in the form of the Percona MySQL Conference, which is in Santa Clara from April 10-12th.

I’ll be speaking at 3:00pm on the 12th. My talk is titled Living with SQL and NoSQL at craigslist: a Pragmatic Approach. The abstract for the talk is:

craigslist uses a variety of data storage systems in its backend systems: in-memory, SQL, and NoSQL. This talk is an overview of how craigslist works with a focus on the data storage and management choices that were made in each of its major subsystems. These include MySQL, memcached, Redis, MongoDB, Sphinx, and the filesystem. Special attention will be paid to the benefits and tradeoffs associated with choosing from the various popular data storage systems, including long-term viability, support, and ease of integration.

If you’re interested in learning more about our data systems at craigslist, drop by.

Then, on the following day (April 13th), the folks behind Sphinx, Drizzle, and SkySQL are putting on a one-day mini-conference that features speakers on a variety of interesting topics. I’ll be speaking as part of Sphinx Search Day 2012. I’m looking forward to meeting Ivinco there as well.

I don’t yet have an abstract for my Sphinx talk, but it’ll probably be similar to a brown bag talk I recently gave at craigslist. It was an overview of how we’re using a mix “traditional” batch-updating Sphinx and Real-Time Sphinx to power some new features.

Hope to see you there!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get setup?

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks
