Fusion IO will be giving away an iPod signed by Steve Wozniak! SPEAKER 1: Fusion IO: Solid-state technologies are changing the way that mySQL users think about running their databases. Database administrators are discovering that the TCO savings associated with radical performance enhancements, reliability improvements and reduced energy and real estate costs of solid-state technologies are leading to changes in the way their datacenters look and how their mySQL Servers perform. This session will address: 1) How I/O bottlenecks impact database performance and make life hard for DBAs 2) How conventional solutions fail to address this problem effectively 3) An overview of the different types of NAND Flash-based products and the advantages and disadvantages of each: a. Disk-based SSDs b. Onboard/Embedded PCI Express devices c. Host-based PCI Express devices 4) How NAND Flash products enable new architectures that deliver ultra-low latency, improve reliability, and shrink infrastructure 5) An example of how e-Retailer implemented NAND Flash solid state to successfully eliminate performance problems.

Overview - Presentation for the LAMySQL / LAPHP Meetup - Aug 10, 2010 No matter what level of experience you have with MySQL, PHP, or developing web applications, you'll find something interesting to take away. -- Richard Howell Introduction to SynApp2 - Web Application Generator and MVC Framework * Background - leading up to SynApp2. (When and Where) * Purpose - what is it used for? (What and Why) * Audience: who needs it? (Who) * Example - how do you use it? (How) * Giving it away - am I nuts? (How much) The MVC's of SynApp2 generated applications A structured discussion with interleaved Q & A Anatomy of a SynApp2 powered web application * The database design/schema and engine (Model) * The web browser, DOM, JavaScript (X)HTML, CSS and PDF (View) * The AJAX exchange cycle and PHP (Controller) About the Speaker Richard Howell has been creating software for many years, both as an independent consultant and as a captive software engineer for several technology companies, including MicroSim Corporation, OrCAD Inc., Cadence Design Systems and Panasonic Avionics Corporation. Throughout his career, Richard's interest in computer-aided design and development has focused on producing effective and practical application programs and tools. Agile Development thrives in the PHP-powered web applications environment. By using smart tools to almost instantly create web applications that harnesses today's SQL databases, developers further their ability to quickly produce solutions, deploy them and then move on - crisply and cleanly. This scenario is the motivation for Richard's latest endeavor, a free open source software project named SynApp2 - Web Application Generator and MVC Framework. As a full time effort, Richard is continuing to build SynApp2 and spread the word. Please visit

There is also a card key required to get to the meeting room at certain hours, so once again, you can give a call if you see the doors locked.

    Fusion IO talk was pretty interesting, gave a good overview of SSD devices market. Their solution might open some interesting possibilities for high performance servers.

    The SynApp2 talk was a bit too scripted, however the after party live demo was pretty interesting. I think we should have started from that demo instead. I think it is not properly positioned as a "Framework" -- it is in fact the app generation tool, which can quickly produce a pretty usable management interface to you application database. Probably one of the best CRUD/scaffolding generation tool I've seen lately. definitely worth playing with.

    Fusion IO was informative, although not relative to my "non enterprise" setup. SynApp2 was a little dry, another framework solution (don't we have enough of these?)

    FYI, there's some weird bugs on Meetup's side where they're sometimes updating future meetup dates and titles even though I click on edit THIS meetup only. Please ignore the dates from September and on, those will be fixed after this meetup happens.
