In this 3 hour tutorial, attendees will learn how to write plugins for the MySQL server.
The tutorial will have a strong focus on practical, hands-on development. The speakers will give live coding demonstrations and attendees are invited to raise questions at any time.
Basic C/C++ skills are recommended for attendees, although not required, in which case some programming skills in Java or PHP are hightly recommended. To allow attendees with no prior C/C++ skills to still gain knowledge and skills, a particular approach is taken that proved to be successful in last year’s UDF tutorial.
Attendees will be provided with a handout containing detailed, well-written labs and instructions to execute them. Accompanying scripts and code will be prepared and distributed at the start of the tutorial, allowing all attendees to build, deploy and test plugins and change the code to learn more about plugin implementation. Instructions and scripts will be prepared for Microsoft Windows (where applicable), GNU/Linux and Mac OSX.
Here is a high level outline of the topics that will be covered during the tutorial:
I’m a Web Application and Business Intelligence developer and I authored two books about the Pentaho Open Source Business Intelligence stack: “Pentaho Solutions” (ISBN 978-0470484326) and “Pentaho Kettle Solutions (ISBN 978-0470635179). I’m an active member of the MySQL and Pentaho communities. In the past, I worked for Inter Access, MySQL AB, Sun Microsystems. I currently work for Strukton Rail.
I’m working in MySQL AB since 2000. Worked in almost every part of the server. To list a few projects – fulltext search, XA, HANDLER, precision math library, parallel repair and bulk inserts in MyISAM, indexes in MERGE. A primary architect of the plugin API. These days I also spend a lot of time doing code and architecture reviews for bug fixes and new features.
