NoSQL Meets Relational — the MySQL Ecosystem Gains More Flexibility

  • We are happy to announce the joint LAMySQL/LAPHP groups event. This time we have Colin Charles, the Chief Evangelist from Percona, talking about exciting new features in MySQL.

    NoSQL is about breaking out of the perceived inflexibility of SQL. It became extremely popular in 2009, but its quite clear that the MySQL world has caught up to many flexibilities available in various NoSQL solutions. It started with dynamic columns being implemented in MariaDB Server for a few years, but that implementation wasn’t complete; we saw Facebook push the limits with DocStore, a document database within their tree. But MySQL (and Percona Server) provides full document store in 5.7, with the ability to also query the database using a new mysqlsh so you can write queries in JavaScript as opposed to regular SQL. There are also improvements when it comes to schema management - for example, now you can do many changes in an online fashion with tools like pt-online-schema-change and Github’s gh-ost. In 2017, its become quite clear that MySQL is bridging the gap to popular NoSQL ideas.


    Colin Charles is the Chief Evangelist at Percona. He was previously on the founding team of MariaDB Server in 2009, and had worked at MySQL since 2005, and been a MySQL user since 2000. Before joining MySQL, he worked actively on the Fedora and projects. He's well known within open source communities in APAC, and has spoken at many conferences.


    Please park in the[masked] corporate parking. Then take parking elevator to the 4th floor. Enter the 200 building from the courtyard. And take that elevator to the 2nd floor. We are suite 200.

    The gates will be open by the time our meeting is over, so no need to get validated. But bring your tickets just in case if you need to leave early.

    Receptionist: Tiffany Alvarez (call for any questions or concerns): (310) 487-7249.

    As always, attendance is free, refreshments and drinks will be served.
