Codership Presentations in Collaborate11 & MySQL User Conference

Codership team did a major two week US tour in April visiting both Collaborate11 and MySQL User Conferences. Three presentations were given during the trip:
The Galera presentations are more or less with same content and show the current state of the Galera project. There is also some real fresh data about recent benchmark runs in Amazon EC2 environment.

The multi master speak explores various multi-master solutions putting them under common classification.

Collaborate is a huge conference with mostly Oracle content. We had time to check out Oracle's MySQL sessions, and were impressed by the progress in the 5.6 release, .e.g. the parallel applying will be available for early testing. This will work in database granularity level, but there should be no obstacles in making parallel applying on table level as well. This looks promising, good work O'mighty Oracle.

MySQL User Conference is as active and vivid as before. However, the expo side is still in recession. Maybe it is high time for us to straighten up and bring our Galera booth there next year. We saw many outstanding presentations in the conference and there were interesting talks in the hallways as well, this conference is sure worth a visit.
