Well, it was ended a week ago, but I had too many errands to run, so I couldn’t post anything about it.

It was really great, again.This was the third time I attended (2013 London, 2015 Santa Clara) so now I have met with a lot of familiar people – it is true that MySQL has a great community. The chosen city was great, Amsterdam is one of the coolest places of Europe, the hotel was neat, and the programs were also astounding.

The conference sessions were great too, I really enjoyed, them all, and because they are running on 8 thread parallel it is not that bad that there are some recurring sessions; if you missed one in spring you can watch it on autumn.

So, everything was comfy and neat. I hope I’ll attend on the next one too …

There were a few topics where I plan to dig deeper in the next weeks

  • ProxySQL because HAProxy is a good choice, but it is only speaks TCP and HTTP but not MYSQL
  • Semi-Sync replication, because getting rid of replication lag would be useful
  • XtraDB Cluster/Galera cluster, because it seems a good evolutionary step beyond our current setup
  • DB options in the cloud.
