Speaking at MySQL Conference 2008

I have been meaning to blog about this for quite some time but time seems to be the most scarce resource in my life.

This year, I will be presenting three sessions at MySQL Conference:

Disaster Is Inevitable—Are You Prepared?

What’s the worst database disaster you expect to happen? Are you prepared? Does your architecture support quicker recovery or do you have recovery bottlenecks built throughout your architecture? What will happen if InnoDB crashed beyond repair or if you have a massive irrepairable data corruption? What can you do to better prepare for the disaster, when it does happen? Do you have data restoration tools and procedures in place in case you need to resort to extreme measures? Join us in this eye opening, heart-racing, real-life inspired presentation by Fotolog’s Director of Database Infrastructure, Farhan “Frank” Mashraqi” to find out answers to these questions and more.

Optimizing MySQL and InnoDB on Solaris 10 for World's Largest Photo Blogging Community

Fotolog is a top 19 Internet destination with more than 12 million members, 315 million photos and more than 3 billion page views a month. In just a few years Fotolog has become a social phenomenon in Europe and South America. Through modifications to its data architecture, Fotolog was able to serve four times the number of users using the same number of database servers. A non-conventional, hybrid presentation that conveys the importance of scalability, performance tuning and schema optimizations in a practical way.

The Power of Lucene

Lucene is a powerful, high-performance, full-featured text search engine library that is written entirely in Java and provides a technology suitable for all size applications requiring full-text search in heterogeneous environments.

In this presentation, learn how you can use Lucene with MySQL to offer powerful searching capabilities within your application. The presentation will cover installation, usage, optimization of Lucene, and how to interface a Ruby on Rails application with Lucene using a custom Java server. This session is highly recommended for those looking to add full-text cross-platform, database independent search capability to their application.

Registration is now open. See you all soon!
