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 session, the core server and most common modules available will be described. A list of things to watch out for while porting applications will given, while introducing new features of Drizzle for both old and new applications.
Examples will primarily be in Python, PHP, and C, but will be applicable to other languages as well.
Eric Day works on the Drizzle and Gearman projects. He has been writing high-performance, multi-threaded servers and databases for most of his career, always with an emphasis on efficiency and security. He has written complete HTTP/SSL, DNS, and IMAP implementations, along with designing and implementing custom storage and database systems. Most of his work has been done in clustered and distributed environments.
Eric also keeps active in the open source community through speaking at conferences and user groups, as well as helping organize camps and conferences in Portland, OR. When not hacking on code, he can be found playing hockey, biking, or enjoying a good vegan meal with his wife.
