For those of you, like myself, who find that December was a bit of haze of holiday parties, there were happenings in the MySQL world.
Sheeri Cabral and I have revived the OurSQL podcasts of yore. There are four that have been recorded and three have been released already. We’ve committed to recording them (almost) weekly going forward. Already, we’ve covered what’s new in MySQL 5.5, Percona’s packaging of HandlerSocket in their most recent release and the MySQL conference landscape for 2011.
This Friday we’ll release a podcast about subqueries and how they do and don’t work in MySQL (frequently they don’t work as you’d hope).
