The Boston MySQL July Meetup ***note date change to Mon Jul 6!!!***

  • Jul 6, 2009 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The July meeting of the Boston MySQL User Group will feature Eric Day, a prominent Drizzle developer, talking about Drizzle and Gearman:

In this talk we will discuss two growing technologies: Drizzle and Gearman. We will explain what the Drizzle project is, what we aim to accomplish, and an overview of where we are at. We will also be introducing the fundamentals of how to leverage Gearman, an open-source, distributed job queuing system. Gearman's generic design allows it to be used as a building block for almost any use - from speeding up your website to building your own Map/Reduce cluster. We will tie Drizzle and Gearman together and demonstrate how they work in a custom Search Engine application.


Here is the URL for MIT's Map with the location of this building:

    Ir was great presentation. I learned a lot of things about Drizzle and directions where MySQL goes. It is interesting to know how Drizzle is going to be incorporation into MySQL framework. I mean documentation, binaries for different platforms and tools.
