How do you want to get [Plus] in 2014!

2013 was and we wish you a happy new year 2014!
Last year was amazing and we are looking forward to live 2014.

I’m honored to take part of two amazing events in 2014, the FOSDEM and PLMCE.
By my lowly contribution as committee member of these two events, I wanted to promote open source in general and MySQL in particular.
And the schedule of these events tells me that we won the bet!
(PLMCE schedule will be published next week)

MySQL raises interest more and again in 2014 and is still in the heart of major architectures ;-)
We are proud to promote community events, community projects and open source initiatives for many years!

Also, for several months we have been working hard on glimpsee.net.
We hope to offer you a private beta release of our elegantly simple dashboard in the next few months.
Glimpsee has been already tested by privileged users since last summer.
And I heard they couldn’t live without our dynamic dashboard…

Hope to meet you somewhere on earth in 2014.

Cheers

FOSDEM 2013, another nice open source event in Europe!

FOSDEM is a free event that offers open source communities a place to meet, 
share ideas and collaborate.
It is renowned for being highly developer-oriented 
and brings together 5000+ geeks from all over the world.

 
This year again, be sure that FOSDEM will be the place to be in February!

Do you have any doubts? Really ? Dude, repeat after me :

  1. Free event
  2. During a week-end
  3. Beer
  4. 5000+ open source geeks
  5. Beer
  6. MySQL and Friends devroom
  7. NoSQL devroom
  8. No registration needed (open source man!)

Ok, that sounds good?

Well, here are the informations to attend this terrific event :

  • How to register? : Are you kidding me?
  • When : 2 & 3 February 2013 (Hurry up guys!)
  • Where : Brussels (beers!!!)
  • Website : https://fosdem.org/2013/

Max and I will be at FOSDEM for the first time this year.

Discover MyXplain, another way to learn, search, find and stroll

 

 

I’m very glad to announce you that MyXplain is released today.

This project is the result of many weeks of work for my friend Max and I and we are obviously very proud to present it.

Please take a time to browse it and find all the surprises that awaiting you.

We wanted to make an unique place, a gathering place where you can find all you want to know about the most useful MySQL commands.
We started with the explain command because we consider it as one of the most important.
show processlist and show slave status will be the next proposed commands on MyXplain.

The concept is pretty simple, we would like to offer you a new documentation to access all needed informations, slides, books and links about a particular command, in a beautiful way.

And, the most important for us was to create something alive, you can propose your links on MyXplain or add comments. In other words, you can share your expertise and your experiences with the MySQL community.

Stay curious, passionate and take your time on MyXplain!

To give a chance to MyXplain, you can share this news with your friends, your mother in law and your colleagues.
We are convinced that this type of tools can help you, in one way or the other.
