This Week in Data with Colin Charles 29: Percona Live Full Schedule, MariaDB Events, and a Matter of Compatibility

Colin Charles

Colin CharlesJoin Percona Chief Evangelist Colin Charles as he covers happenings, gives pointers and provides musings on the open source database community.

I think the biggest news from Percona-land is that besides the tutorial grid, the schedule for day 1 and day 2 are live! Also notice the many “sub-themes”: a 101 track, using MySQL, MongoDB, cloud, MySQL database software, PostgreSQL, containers & automation, monitoring & ops, and misc. database stuff. Learn from 107 different experts (this number is likely to increase). So register now.

This coming week, Peter Zaitsev, Tom Basil, and I will be in New York. Some of us will be at the MariaDB 2018 Developers Unconference, and all of us will be attending M|18. We have a schedule for the Developers Unconference, and I hope you find time on Sunday to join us as I present MySQL features missing in MariaDB  between 12:15-13:00. Being an unconference, it shouldn’t just be a presentation, but also active discussion. I recall during the FOSDEM MySQL DevRoom, MariaDB Foundation developer Vicentiu Ciorbaru assigned to himself support for the super readonly feature (see tweet).

If you have thoughts of what you like in MySQL but are missing from MariaDB Server, please don’t hesitate to tweet at me @bytebot, or even drop me an email: colin.charles@percona.com. I will happily change and add to the slides until Sunday morning, Eastern Standard Time.

Why is this important? Quite simply, take a look at Todd Farmer’s blog post: Bitten by MariaDB 10.2 Incompatible Change. Here’s Cloudera Manager failing, on specific minor versions of software since the behavior changed (so this particular issue occurs in 10.2.8+ but not before!). I’d definitely spend some time reading the comments as well as the associated Jira. Maybe with 10.3/10.4, it’s time to stop calling it a “drop-in replacement” (an initial goal when I worked on MariaDB Server), and just call it something else. Maybe something for the new Chief Marketing Officer to think about?
